Frameworks guiding the analysis: applied to or derived from the data?

Bruce, Christine S. (2003) Frameworks guiding the analysis: applied to or derived from the data? In EARLI Experience and Understanding SIG (SIG10) Meeting, November/December 2002, Australia National University, Canberra.

Abstract

Attending to two phenomenographic projects, where the phenomenon being explored are very closely related, provides an example of how the analysis framework itself may be constituted through the interaction between researcher and data. Using an example of how the conceptual framework guiding the analysis and the character of the outcome space ultimately differed for two closely related projects, I raise the following points for discussion: 1) that the framework guiding the analysis can only be partly specified prior to the project being undertaken; 2) that the interrelationship between researcher and data is made visible in the framework guiding the analysis; 3) that the framework guiding the analysis can be only partly specified prior to the research being undertaken; 4) as the analysis is conducted the phenomenon as it is visible in the data influences the framework guiding the analysis; and 5) the final conceptual framework guiding the analysis is a product (for want of a better word) of our prior understanding of the character of phenomena generally and how they may be described on the one hand, and the character of the specific phenomenon under investigation on the other.

Impact and interest:

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
