This book is a must for all fieldworkers who work closely with interview, narrative, and visual materials. It is thoughtful, well-written, and inclusive. The appendices alone are invaluable!
Saldaña’s Coding Manual for Qualitative Researchers has become an indispensable resource for my teaching, my doctoral students, and my own research. The 3rd edition, with new approaches and new examples from a broad array of researchers and disciplines, will be even more indispensable.
This third edition clarifies marvelously the process of coding qualitative data, provides wonderful examples of the over 25 coding methods, recognizes the ambiguity in the analysis of qualitative data, and reinforces the richness inherent in qualitative data.
The Coding Manual is the go-to handbook for all qualitative researchers. This latest edition offers a thorough discussion on analyzing visual data and writing analytic memos, making this the most comprehensive text on the coding process.
The book is as an important source for gaining an overview of current procedures and practices of structuring, interpreting and presenting qualitative data. The book helps students to become acquainted and re-visit their coding skills, and beyond that, their ways of interpretation and relating themselves to their data. The book is a source of inspiration as well as reference guide for conducting your own research and writing about your interpretive steps.
Saldana is the first and last word on coding for qualitative researchers and I strongly encourage all my qualitative students and colleagues to purchase it. I have recently purchased Atlas.ti software, which I will teach the PhDs how to use - so will be recommending the book even more strongly.
The book is an excellent resource for students doing qualitative research. It guides the beginner researcher step-by-step on the different technology and how to do coding of qualitative data.
Specific and detailed support for analysing qualitative data- hard to find a text that matches it.
An excellent book. Extremely clear and comprehensive explanations, very useful examples.
Not adopted for the MA course as in parts, quite technical. However, we have recommended this text for our research degree students taking the research methods compulsory course (30-50 entrants PA).
Very important for the qualitative researchers in our masters programme.
An essential guide for our masters programme.
One of the most comprehensive guides to qualitative coding I've seen - very useful for our MA training in qualitative data analysis.
Excellent book and essential for students conducting qualitative research
A brilliant book. A complete focus on how to code qualitative material - again, an absolute must for researchers
An informative text for students undertaking advanced research methods programmes.
A very thorough book, but too specialised for undergraduate level.
The book is a great resource with its depth, guidance and examples. Most useful are the recommendations for analytical storytelling as well as the material in Appendix A to D. They are great for reference and also for classroom activity.
Should we have a separate course on Qualitative methods, it could be adopted as essential course material. As it is, we teach Qualitative and Quantitative in one course, with lower level of complexity of both topics, so the book could only be used as supplemental source from which isolated examples or exercises are used within the course.
Excellent, exceptional book. The best help out there for dissertation students and researchers. Absolutely love this book. Had no idea there were so many analysis methods. I am quite keen on dramatic analysis now.
The book elaborates on good practice with detailed instructions for coding which will be of practical use for students in doing their practical course work project.
