|Title:||Sampling In Qualitative Research: A Proposal For Procedures To Detect Theoretical Saturation [amostragem Em Pesquisas Qualitativas: Proposta De Procedimentos Para Constatar Saturação Teórica]|
|Abstract:||A qualitative study's methodological transparency is considered a key factor for achieving its reliability and should be guaranteed by the researchers. Closing the sampling process by saturation is a common approach, but it is rarely made explicit in research reports. Qualitative researchers also commonly experience technical difficulties in objectively identifying saturation. This article proposes a method to organize sample closing by saturation, with a sequence of eight procedural steps for treating and analyzing data collected through open or semi-structured interviews or focus groups. The article aims to help researchers objectively explain how and when saturation occurred and to allow their readers to know how this process occurred.|
