Qualitative studies gain more and more importance in different research fields in sport science as they allow a deeper understanding of processes. Since longtime, there are different approaches in collecting and analyzing qualitative data, like for example Grounded Theory, Documentary Method or Qualitative Content Analysis, which itself is sub-divided in different approaches. In contrast to quantitative analyzing strategy, the analysis of qualitative data always requires an explanation of the chosen data collection and analyzing strategy as well as of the precise application and undertaken steps. This so-called intersubjective comprehensibility is one of the most important quality criteria of qualitative studies.

This workshop will provide an overview of different qualitative collecting and analyzing approaches in relation to possible research purposes and data (e.g., interviews, group discussions or video records). Depending on participants´ interests, particular questions concerning the own research project or qualitative data material can be discussed during the workshop. If participants would like to focus on particular questions or analyzing strategies or on their own data material, they shall inform the workshop leader via mail.
