Abstract

This fourth and final paper on qualitative methods
discusses the different ways that qualitative findings can be
presented. We address the following topics: when to start
writing up, considering the intended audience and the
structure of the report/paper. We stress the value of being
transparent and reflexive when writing up qualitative
results. Although we have confined ourselves largely to
written results, as this is the most common way of
presenting findings, we briefly highlight some issues
related to reporting photographic or videotaped data.
