Qualitative Data Analysis software

For your qualitative data analysis needs, Data Services supports Atlas.ti and NVivo software applications using Boot Camp on our Mac machines. Currently there are twenty-three workstations in the Research Commons with Atlas.ti 7.5.3 installed on them; twelve (virtual) licenses are in circulation for NVivo.

These data analysis tools can be used for an assortment of purposes, including coding and analyzing transcripts, field notes, literature reviews, grants, and other documentation. Source materials for coding and analysis using either software can include DOCX., CSV, PDF, TXT, RTF, PJEG, GIF, and audio & video formats.

Deciding on what qualitative data analysis software application to use may require some forethought. Each software application has its advantages. Please fill out our appointment form if you require a consultation on usage of each software.

Additionally, we also provide stand alone and/or course integrated workshops and one-on-one consultations for faculty, staff, research groups, and students.
