    Analysis of Qualitative Research Published in Korean Journal of Occupational Therapy

    Kim, Seul-Gee ORD ID , Park, Kyoung-Hee , Park, Tae-Hong and 2 other persons | 2019, 27(3) | pp.1~14 | number of Cited : 0
    Objective: The purpose of this study is to analyze qualitative research published in the Korean Journal ofOccupational Therapy. Methods: The researchers identified 16 qualitative studies among 692 papers in the Korean Journal of OccupationalTherapy from the first issue in 1993 until 2018. These studies were analyzed using COnsolidated criteria forREporting the Qualitative research(COREQ) developed by Tong et al(2007). Results: The first domain, “Research team and reflexivity”, properly maintained the notification items for researchpurposes, as well as the participants’ rights and the researchers’ duties, whereas the reported items of researcherexperience and training were insufficient. In the second domain, “study design”, phenomenology was the mostcommon research methodology, and most of the interview guidelines were presented in the paper, althoughinterview dropouts and interview environment reports were insufficient. Finally, in the third domain “Analysis andfindings”, the participants’ quotations and topic presentation items were generally well followed, but the participantchecking was not. Conclusion: This study showed that COREQ can provide a systematic reporting framework for qualitative researchand can be a useful guideline to improve the consistency of the research methods and the transparency of theresearch methods. Therefore, COREQ is expected to contribute to the improvement in quality of the qualitativeresearch conducted in occupational therapy.
