Qualitative research is characterised by its analytical goals: the development of categories, the elaboration of concepts or the formulation of a theory. Because of this analytical openness, the research design shows successive phases, each with its own objective and specific demands for data collection, textual analysis and analytical reflection. Many reports on qualitative research fail to present a systematic analysis to support the relevance of developed categories. Three steps in qualitative analysis are presented here: interpretative analysis using open coding, comparative analysis using axial coding and integrative analysis using profile cards and selective coding. The computer can be of great help in dealing with the administrative work related to the cyclical process of reading, comparing and reflecting on text segments.
