Handling Qualitative Data
A Practical Guide

Fourth Edition


January 2021 | 280 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd

Viewing data as the heart of qualitative research, this book offers clear guidance on the steps involved in collecting and managing primary and secondary data while equipping students with a toolkit that they can apply to data in any context. This new edition is reinforced by a range of updates:

  • Ethical practice learning features, such as exercises and reflective questions
  • Thoughtful guidance on the newer challenges in handling qualitative data, like data security and access to online data
  • New chapters provide clear advice on communicating data to different audiences, and creating impactful data visualizations
  • Online resources that illustrate how to work with data in real research projects; including a ‘stepping into software’ space that provides practical tips and guidance on using qualitative analysis software effectively

In its positive and jargon-free style, it discusses how setting up, working with, making sense of and presenting data can be a springboard into learning key research skills and reflecting on methodological issues.
