Review: Áine Humble & M. Elise Radina (Eds.) (2019). How Qualitative Data Analysis Happens: Moving Beyond "Themes Emerged"

Kelly Colleen O'Neil


In this article I offer a review of HUMBLE and RADINA's 2019 book, "How Qualitative Data Analysis Happens: Moving Beyond 'Themes Emerged'," a collection of commentaries from qualitative researchers discussing their approaches to data analysis. The editors describe the goal of this work as an attempt to lift the veil on research practices typically shrouded by space limitations in academic publications. Considered from the perspective of a new researcher, I examine the ways in which this book may support emerging scholars in their qualitative research work.
