"A welcome step in the advance of qualitative methods, this text integrates software at every stage of a thorough introduction to approaches and techniques. With clear examples, each step in NVivo is clearly described and thoughtfully explained in the context of what is being done and how it supports qualitative inquiry."--Professor Lyn Richards, Director, QSR." ... a very detailed, clearly expressed and structured text which will be of immense help to anyone wanting to use NVivo for a research project."--Professor Colin Robson, author of "Real World Research" How can qualitative analysis of textual data be undertaken? How can the core procedures of qualitative analysis be followed using computer software such as NVivo? How can the extra tools NVivo offers the analyst be used to support and improve qualitative analysis? "Qualitative Data Analysis" introduces readers to key approaches in qualitative analysis, demonstrating in each case how to carry them out using NVivo. NVivo is a new, powerful computer package from QSR, the developers of NUD+IST. It provides the researcher with an extensive range of tools and the book shows clearly how each can be used to support standard qualitative analysis techniques such as coding, theory building, theory testing, cross-sectional analysis, modelling and writing. The book demonstrates how different styles of analysis, such as grounded theory and narrative, rhetorical and structured approaches, can be undertaken using NVivo. In most cases, the analysis is illustrated using documents from a single data set. There are copious figures, tables, guides and hints for good practice. The result is an invaluable text for undergraduates and an essential reference for postgraduates and researchers needing to learn both qualitative analysis techniques and the use of software such as NVivo

The Third Edition of Miles & Huberman's classic research methods text is updated and streamlined by Johnny Saldaña, author of The Coding Manual for Qualitative Researchers. Several of the data display strategies from previous editions are now presented in re-envisioned and reorganized formats to enhance reader accessibility and comprehension. The Third Edition’s presentation of the fundamentals of research design and data management is followed by five distinct methods of analysis: exploring, describing, ordering, explaining, and predicting. Miles and Huberman's original research studies are profiled and accompanied with new examples from Saldaña's recent qualitative work. The book's most celebrated chapter, "Drawing and Verifying Conclusions," is retained and revised, and the chapter on report writing has been greatly expanded, and is now called “Writing About Qualitative Research.” Comprehensive and authoritative, Qualitative Data Analysis has been elegantly revised for a new generation of qualitative researchers.

“Di Gregorio & Davidson provide an essential guide for qualitative researchers who wish to get to grips with the potential of software packages for handling qualitative data, research design and ethical and privacy issues ... The authors open up new ground … by integrating the discussion of qualitative data analysis software into the wider context of methodological practice. The authors' arguments and general approach are illustrated in an accessible and engaging manner through the use of detailed case studies of qualitative research using a range of software packages. A smooth read, crammed full of invaluable advice and 'best practice' guidelines and checklists…” Derek Layder, University of Leicester, UK This book is an essential guide for anyone using qualitative data analysis software (QDAS), particularly useful for those who want to go beyond a basic introduction to discover how to get the most out of software and how to identify the methodological issues they need to consider. The book is organized in three parts – the first part addresses the methodological issues that need to be addressed when designing qualitative research using QDAS; the second part uses case studies to demonstrate the issues and the design framework introduced in the first part. These chapters are supported by numerous screenshots illustrating the software under discussion. The last part contains practical appendices to help readers apply the framework introduced to their own research. Di Gregorio and Davidson introduce: The notion of the E-Project or electronic project as a genre A framework for representing the research design of a project in any QDAS package Ethical considerations when working in QDAS A variety of contextual issues including national and organizational differences Eight real research projects of a variety of designs and using different QDAS (ATLAS.ti, MAXqda, NVIVO, and XSight) Separate checklists for ATLAS.ti, MAXqda, NVIVO, and XSight, providing practical help in applying the research design framework presented in the book Uniquely, the book examines issues related to both academic and non-academic uses of QDAS. Qualitative Research Design for Software Users is a useful reference for upper level students, academics and researchers across a range of disciplines.
