Choosing a CAQDAS Package

With a range of software on the market how do you make an informed choice about the best software to use?

Manufacturer sites promote the features, benefits and flexibility of their software, but are less forthcoming on the limitations and effects of their design choices.

As a trainer and consultant I have:

  • extensive experience as a user, researcher and trainer with ATLAS.ti on Mac, PC and iPad
  • extensive experience as a user, researcher and trainer with NVivo 10 and 11 on PC and Mac
  • a good level of familiarity and developing expertise with MaxQDA
  • experience as an active trainer and supporter of the QDA-Lite package F4 Analyse
  • experience in supporting students in public engagement in analysis with Quirkos
  • extensive experience with Leximancer for semi-automated text-mining and theme identification in large textual datasets
  • user experience of Transana

These support me in running  workshops and developing bespoke training in making an informed choice about the best software to support your research needs whether they be:

  • systematic literature reviewing
  • working with very large qualitative datasets
  • simple textual analysis
  • complex multi-site team projects
  • small scale research or teaching projects
