Editorial Reviews


'This book is an important and updated addition to the scarce literature [available] for choosing a software package to support the analysis of data in qualitative research….[T]he clear, concise, and practical language as well as the numerous pictures…will help any confused, technologically anxious user feel more competent in using technology for…analysis'

Forum: Qualitative Social Research

The text is like having Ann or Christina at

your shoulder guiding you through,

explaining not only the practical steps, but

why you might want to do something in

the first place. A good marriage of

methodological reflection and practical


Duncan Branley

[The] authors have written a very helpful

step-by-step guide, comparing different

software packages, including ‘real

research’ examples and proposing

interesting tasks to the reader. This is a

long awaited textbook.

About the Author

Christina graduated from Essex University in 1997 in Politics and Sociology, after which she came to Surrey and completed the Social Research Methods M.Sc. with distinction and she obtained her ESRC funded PhD comparing the development of school-based sex education in England and Wales and the Netherlands in 2002. Christina has been working with the CAQDAS Networking Project on an ad hoc basis since 1998 and joined the Project formally in 2002 as part-time Resource Officer and Course Tutor. She is now the CAQDAS Networking Project Manager. The Project provides platforms of debate concerning the use of Computer Assisted Qualitative Data AnalysiS (CAQDAS). We train students and researchers in a number of CAQDAS packages, run an advisory telephone help-line, website, the ‘qualitative software' electronic discussion list and develop and teach new courses. Christina also advises and trains research teams on their use of CAQDAS software. The CAQDAS Networking Project is currently working on a new project funded by the ESRC National Centre for Research Methods (NCRM). Qualitative Innovations in CAQDAS (QUIC) explores three new breaking developments in the use of CAQDAS alongside our training and capacity building activities. The first concerns the support that software provides for integrating qualitative and quantitative data, the second the analysis of multi-stream visual data and the third the convergence of GIS and CAQDAS technology. We are developing exemplars and self-learning materials. As well as working with the CAQDAS Networking Project, Christina has been commissioned to carry out research projects for a number of independent organisations including a collaborative Action Research Project between East Sussex Hospitals NHS Trust, the Centre for the Development of Health Care Policy and Practice (CDNPP) at Leeds University and the Facilities Management Graduate Centre (FMGC) at Sheffield Hallam University. Christina is also an Associate Consultant for the Centre for the Development of Nursing Policy and Practice (CDNPP) at Leeds University.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I use QDA Miner and Wordstat, so this wasn't ideal for that program (though there were a few pages devoted to them in the back). It IS good for gaining a better understanding of what software programs can do for your particular study, and is very helpful at the project development level, especially if you haven't commited to a software package yet.

Also, the book includes a list of resources and links that I really appreciated!
