Checklist: Writing about Your Qualitative Research
Have you made clear the aims of your project?
Have you explicitly formulated your research question and presented it?
Is it evident how you have selected which persons or situations to involve in your study and what your approach of sampling was?
How far can readers understand how you collected your data? For instance, did you present examples of questions you asked?
Is it transparent how data collection proceeded, which special occurrences played a role – perhaps for the quality of the data?
How clear will your analysis of your data be to readers?
Have you addressed questions (criteria and strategies) of quality assurances in the research?
Have you condensed your findings, so that the readers you intend to reach see their essentials?
Have you drawn (e.g., practical) consequences from your study and its findings and did you discuss them?
How easy is it to read and understand your report – and have you complemented the text with illustrations?
Have you provided enough evidence (e.g., quotations) to enable your readers to evaluate your results?
