Creativity in Qualitative Research

Today, as part of my teaching in the "Research Methods" class, I was explaining the basics of open coding procedure in qualitative studies. Open coding, which is usually the first phase of data analysis in this approach, is a method to find concepts in the collected data. While this explanation, I noticed once again that "creativity" is an essential element for researchers in this stage. Otherwise, it becomes too difficult to get a good outcome in qualitative studies. Hopefully, in the future posts, I'll write some practical suggestions to enhance creativity in qualitative research.
