The Coding Manual for Qualitative Researchers is unique in providing, in one volume, an in-depth guide to each of the multiple approaches available for coding qualitative data. In total, 29 different approaches to coding are covered, ranging in complexity from beginner to advanced level and covering the full range of types of qualitative data from interview transcripts to field notes. For each approach profiled, Johnny Saldaa discusses the method's origins in the professional literature, a description of the method, recommendations for practical applications, and a clearly illustrated example. Also included in the book is an introduction to how codes and coding initiate qualitative data analysis, their applications with qualitative data analysis software, the writing of supplemental analytic memos, and recommendations for how to best use the manual for particular studies. The Coding Manual for Qualitative Researchers is an invaluable reference for all students, teachers, and practitioners of qualitative inquiry, and a useful textbook for beginning and advanced qualitative research methods courses in such disciplines as education, sociology, communication, anthropology, psychology, and health care.
