Decision Tree - Making Qualitative Data Reusable


This decision tree is a supplement to the Guidebook "Making Qualitative Data Reusable" available at 10.5281/zenodo.7777519. 

The guidebook aims to give an overview of the challenges associated with making qualitative data reusable as well as providing guidance on how reusability can be improved and addressed at all stages of the research data life cycle.

This decision tree can be used by researchers and data stewards to evaluate the options for making qualitative data reusable that are most suited for their projects. The guide and decision tree were created in the beginning of 2023 as part of the CaRe & DaRe project, funded by the NWO Open Science fund under file number 203.001.153  and led by prof. dr. ir. J. J. Berends (VU).
