English term or phrase:During open coding
The first step in processing the subjects' statements was the detailed transcription of the tape recordings. Next, the codes, which are the basic analysis units, were extracted. Open coding refers to the part of analysis that specifically concerns naming and categorizing the phenomenon through exhaustive data examination. During open coding, data were "broken" into small phrases, examined, compared for similarities and differences, and questions about the codes were asked, related to the phenomenon contained in the data. Through this process, the phenomenon is questioned or explored, thus allowing for new discoveries. These two analytical procedures are essential for coding the data: "making comparisons" and "making questions" regarding each incident, event, and other aspects of the phenomenon. The coded data were grouped by phenomenon similarity. This process of grouping concepts regarding the same phenomenon is called categorization. One category is saturated when it is no longer possible to add new data, or when no further representative aspects emerge(12).
Questa fase prende il nome di open coding, il cui risultato ultimo è quello di raggruppare tutti i fenomeni al livello più astratto e sintetico delle categorie. Con le parole di Strauss e Corbin (1990), la codifica aperta è il processo di suddivisione, analisi, comparazione, concettualizzazione e categorizzazione dei dati.
