Analysis in qualitative research [Monograph]
Boeije, H. \ 2010
research - qualitative techniques - qualitative analysis - methodology - data analysis - planning - writing - qualitative methods

This book helps readers prepare and successfully finish qualitative data analysis. It sets out an easy to grasp model-the spiral of analysis-that shows how to break up the data with coding and how to subsequently integrate the data to yield a meaningful picture of the phenomenon under study. It offers devices to guide the reader through the last difficult integrating phase of qualitative analysis including diagramming, memoing, thinking aloud, and using one’s feelings. The book incorporates the support of software for qualitative data analysis. The analysis is placed in the context of modern quality criteria and the demands posed on the reporting. The book cannot take the place of the process of thinking about the data, but it does provide thinking aids and practical tools to process the data, which can result in interesting findings.

Discovering statistics using SPSS (and sex and drugs and rock 'n' roll) [Monograph] - 3rd [fully upd.] ed
Field, A. \ cop. 2009
statistics - statistical analysis - data processing - computer software - methodology - programming - sampling - distribution - linear models - data analysis

In this edition an important new introductory material on statistics is introduced that the student will need and was missing at least in the first edition. This book is a textbook in statistics and a manual on SPSS. It is a balanced composite of both topics, using SPSS to illustrate important statistical material and, through graphics, to make visible important approaches to data analysis. Fully revised and restructured, this new edition is even more accessible as it now takes students through from introductory to advanced level concepts, all the while grounding knowledge through the use of SPSS Statistics. While still providing a very comprehensive collection of statistical methods, tests and procedures, and packed with examples and self-assessment tests to reinforce knowledge, the new edition now also offers: a more gentle introduction to basic-level concepts and methods for beginners; new textbook features to make the book more user-friendly for those learning about more advanced concepts, encouraging 'critical thinking'; a brand new, full-colour design, making it easy for students to navigate between topics, and to understand how to use the latest version of SPSS Statistics; both 'real world' (the bizarre and the wonderful) and invented examples that illustrate the concepts and make the techniques come alive for students; an additional chapter on multilevel modelling for advanced-level students; and, reinforced binding to make the book easier to handle at a computer workstation. The book also includes access to a brand new and improved companion Website, bursting with features including: animated 'SPSS walk-through' videos clearly demonstrating how to use the latest SPSS Statistics modules; self-marking multiple choice questions; data sets for psychology, business and management and health sciences; a flash-card glossary for testing knowledge of key concepts; and, access to support material from SAGE study skills books. Statistics lecturers are also provided with a whole range of resources and teaching aids, including: the test bank; over 300 multiple-choice questions ready to upload to WebCT, Blackboard or other virtual learning environments; charts and diagrams in electronic format for inclusion in lecture slides; and, PowerPoint slides written by the author to accompany chapters of the text.
