Open peer commentary on the article “An Analysis Procedure for the Micro-Phenomenological Interview” by Camila Valenzuela-Moguillansky & Alejandra Vásquez-Rosati. Abstract: I question the viability of a qualitative analysis method’s taking the form of a rigid step-by-step recipe. Instead, I argue for the identification of core aspects influencing the research results. Using two studies in which I participated, I aim to demonstrate the impact of the research horizon - i.e., the researchers’ expectations, assumptions as well as attitude towards the material.
