Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The purpose of this paper is to provide guidance for novice researchers using Colaizzi's (1978) phenomenological method of data analysis. It offers personal insights into how to present an auditable decision trail in a phenomenological research study and explores issues of rigour and trustworthiness. For the novice it provides practical examples of how to illustrate the processes that can be employed to interpret and make sense of the research material when writing a thesis or research report.
