Writing instead of coding: Data analysis in phenomenological research

The step from research data to a rich and meaningful description of a phenomenon appears to be complicated for many researchers. This article describes a method of phenomenological analysis in which writing is emphasized as the central activity. The writing of textual portraits supports the researcher in the process of understanding and enables the disclosure of the experience in an evocative manner. The use of phenomenological literature in the subsequent step of reflective writing brings the analysis to an even higher level.
