Overview of Qualitative Research

Qualitative research has been described as “a site of multiple interpretive practices”.  Qualitative researchers use a broad range of interpretive practices to make sense of primarily non-numerical data.  These approaches range from ethnography, hermeneutics, and phenomenology to grounded theory, ethnomethodology, and narrative analysis—to name just a few. Their goal is to make sense of the socio-cultural contexts in which specific issues or events are embedded. (From J. Davidson, UML) 

Qualitative data analysis (QDA) is the range of processes and procedures whereby we move from the qualitative data that have been collected into some form of explanation, understanding or interpretation of the people and situations we are investigating. (FromOnline QDA.)
