Synopsis

Computer Programs for Qualitative Data Analysis A Software Sourcebook by Eben Weitzman, Matthew B. Miles

Written by qualitative researchers for qualitative researchers, and not presuming extensive computer experience, this user-friendly guide takes a critical look at the wide range of software currently available. The book gives detailed reviews of 24 programs in five major categories: text retrievers, textbase managers, code-and-retrieve programs, code-based theory-builders and conceptual network-builders. In addition, the book provides ratings of over 75 features per program. The authors also offer detailed guidance on the operation of each program, helping the reader to ask key questions about the use of the computer - the nature of the project being undertaken, what time-line analyses are planned and what worksheets are required - all to assist in identifying the programs best suited to the reader's needs.

About the Author

His work focused on planned change in education, group and organizational studies, and the dissemination and implementation of research findings.
