CLOG

Tracking methodological developments/decisions, theoretical insights and recording one's own emotions and responses are subjects recorded in the daily journal. We record what we think about, ideas that have influenced us, and what has confronted or disturbed us. When we are uncomfortable, we ask further questions about the nature of the discomfort. Reflections are analysed and often instigate action, perhaps reshaping the way in which the research is progressed. Thus, journal jottings become data for reflection and analysis, and are woven into the research text and show readers how an interpretation was made. Koch on Cutliffe and McKenna (2004)
