Reuse guide

Since the mid-1990s we have witnessed a growing body of knowledge and practical guidance on reusing qualitative data, sparked in the UK by the funding of Qualidata by the ESRC. We provide some insight into the ethical, methodological and epistemological issues, offer practical ways to get started, and showcase scholars' and teachers' creative use of secondary data.
