Re: What problem does access to evidence and transparency address?

The hard challenge that any version of this will face I think is the difficulty of specifying in advance the sorts of patterns that might be seen, and how they would be interpreted, given the complexity of qualitative data and the possibility of unexpected, but still interpretable, patterns. I'd be...

Re: Understanding what types of sources--text-based or non-text-based--researchers are using

What types of sources do you use? Text-based sources might include archival materials collected by public authorities, papers from private collections, newspaper articles, notes from interviews, etc. Non-text-based sources might include photographs, transcripts of radio broadcasts, videos, websites...

Re: Presenting our evidence

Thanks, Marcus, for your post. I suppose that in order to answer your question, one would have to pin down exactly what qualifies as an unreported finding in qualitative research. In so doing, I think one can begin by noting that since a finding is not the same as data, the full body of archive docu...

Re: Transparency in case selection

Thanks, Heather, for this post. It seems to me that the post raises a broader question: I wonder what we can say further about the grounds on which "the final set of cases" used can and should be justified: should the arguments provided to justify/defend a particular selection of cases nec...

Re: Refining Norms/Practices in Publishing

It seems that we need to think through how transparency is presented more than we have so far. In addition to a set of practices for achieving transparency, a conversation about how it is reflected in published research needs to think through its presentation. And that will involve a broader re-thin...

Transparency in case selection

What should scholars say about how cases were selected, and the point in the research process at which such selection took place? Should qualitative researchers always identify a logic (typical, most-likely etc.) for their selection of cases? What other information should scholars provide to make ca...

How can we draw on existing practices?

What current practices of achieving transparency and data access in qualitative research do work, in your view, and could serve as a template for future scholarship?

Where are the DA-RT supporters?

Colleagues, I'm beginning to wonder whether this conversation is as truly deliberative as it might be. Where are the voices in support of DA-RT? I should state for the record that I am on the fence about DA-RT and more supportive than most on here, but my main motive in posting this is that we would...
