Mapping Miles and Huberman’s Within-Case and Cross-Case Analysis Methods onto the Literature Review Process

Anthony J. Onwuegbuzie, Rebecca K. Weinbaum


Recently, several authors have attempted to make the literature review process more transparent by providing a step-by-step guide to conducting literature reviews. However, although these works are very informative, none of them delineate how to display information extracted from literature reviews in a reader-friendly and visually appealing manner. Thus, the purpose of this article was to provide a framework for visually displaying information extracted for literature reviews via Miles and Huberman’s (1994) within- and cross-case displays. As part of our demonstration of the utility of visual displays, we use an actual body of published works that were subjected to some of these displays. Finally, we illustrate how to use a qualitative data analysis software program to facilitate these visual displays.
