Diary Methods

This chapter discusses basic design considerations for qualitative diary studies that involve either archival or solicited diaries. After a brief overview of the unique types of data diaries can provide, a separate discussion is provided for archival and solicited diary studies. Archival diary researchers will need to locate diaries that have already been written for personal reasons or for past research studies. They will not have any say in the format of these pre-existing diaries. Solicited diary researchers, in contrast, must plan for participant selection and recruitment and the structure and timing of the diary entries. The chapter concludes with a discussion of potential supporting documents for both archival and solicited diary studies.

Keywords:   Diary research design, qualitative archival diary research design, solicited diary research design, types of diary data, archival diaries, archival research diaries, secondary diary research, solicited diary research, participant recruitment and selection in diary studies, number of participants in diary studies, medium of diary entries, timing of diary entries, supporting documentation in diary studies
