Mapping Saldana's Coding Methods onto the Literature Review Process
Onwuegbuzie, Anthony J.; Frels, Rebecca K.; Hwang, Eunjin
Journal of Educational Issues, v2 n1 p130-150 2016
Onwuegbuzie and Frels (2014) provided a step-by-step guide illustrating how discourse analysis can be used to analyze literature. However, more works of this type are needed to address the way that counselor researchers conduct literature reviews. Therefore, we present a typology for coding and analyzing information extracted for literature reviews based on Saldana's (2012) coding methods. We present stages for conducting these analyses using an actual body of published works and illustrate how to use a computer-assisted qualitative data analysis software program, namely, QDA Miner. Finally, we delineate how using this systematic approach promotes counselor identity and addresses the call for ethical, transparent research and evidence-based practices.
