This article addresses a number of issues related to qualitative data processing and analysis in Public Administration and Management research. The article conceptualises data processing and analysis in this field and then deals with the key variables affecting these procedures, including the preparation and organising of field notes and transcripts (memoing), methods of theme and pattern identification, coding and concept mapping. The impact of research interventions (the so-called researcher effects), qualitative data organising and reporting options and the role of technology in qualitative data analysis are also highlighted.
