Please see attached a short article on the use and deployment of the "Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis" (IPA) for making sense of, and analyzing qualitative data. It's a turnkey approach developed in the UK by Jonathan Smith et al. at the University of Birkbeck. The redeeming feature of this approach is its ease of use, especially for the novice researcher and the more advanced candidates who are looking to make sense of novel phenomena.
