Johnny Saldaña (Author)
Johnny Saldana's unique and invaluable manual demystifies the qualitative coding process with a comprehensive assessment of different coding types, examples and exercises.

An array of strategies, from the straightforward to the more complex, are skillfully explained and carefully exemplified, providing an complete repertoire of codes and skills that can be applied to any research project. For each code Saldaña provides information about the method's origin, gives a detailed description of the method, demonstrates its practical applications, and sets out a clearly illustrated example with analytic follow-up. Now with a companion website, the book is supported by: examples of the approach being applied in real research; multidisciplinary case studies showcasing pros and cons; links to digital content; links to relevant data sets; practical student exercises; glossary flash cards.
