Qualitative Data Analysis with NVivo by Patricia BazeleyIn plain language but with very thorough detail, this book guides the researcher who really wants to use the NVivo software (and use it now) into their project. The way is lit with real-project examples, adorned with tricks and tips, but its a clear path to a project - Lyn Richards, Founder and Non-Executive Director, QSR International Qualitative Data Analysis with NVivo is essential reading for anyone thinking of using their computer to help analyze qualitative data. With 15 years of experience in computer-assisted analysis of qualitative and mixed-mode data, Pat Bazeley is one of the leaders in the use and teaching of NVivo software. Through this very practical book, readers are guided on how to make best use of the powerful and flexible tools offered by the latest version of NVivo as they work through each stage of their research projects. Explanations draw on examples from her own and others projects, and are supported by the methodological literature. Researchers have different requirements and come to their data from different perspectives. This book shows how NVivo software can accommodate and assist analysis across those different perspectives and methodological approaches. It is required reading for both students and experienced researchers alike.

The Implication of Using NVivo Software in Qualitative Data Analysis: Evidence-Based Reflections
For a long time, electronic data analysis has been associated with quantitative methods. This may be due to the difficulties that one has to go through to master the software and the misconceptions that are associated with using CAQDAS. In this paper, the author reflects on his experience of interacting with one of the popular CAQDAS NVivo in order to provide evidence-based implications of using the software. The key message is that unlike statistical software, the main function of CAQDAS is not to analyse data but rather to aid the analysis process, which the researcher must always remain in control of. In other words, researchers must equally know that no software can analyse qualitative data.
NVivo is a software program used for qualitative and mixed-methods research. Specifically, it is used for the analysis of unstructured text, audio, video, and image data, including but not limited to interviews, focus groups, surveys, social media, and journal articles. It is produced by QSR International. As of July , it is available for both Windows and Macintosh operating systems; however, the Macintosh version is missing some of the features that the Windows version has. NVivo 11 and 12 are available for Windows and Mac. See QSR International's comparison of product features for more information:. All currently-employed faculty and staff, as well as currently-enrolled graduate students are eligible to request a license at no charge.
