Dialogue About Qualitative Data Analysis Software

Tyler Jamison, Candace L. Kemp, Katherine E. Speirs, Andrea Swenson, Colleen K. Vesely

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


In this chapter, five contributors from this book’s first section dialogue with each other about using computer-assisted qualitative data analysis software (CAQDAS) in their qualitative research. They discuss (a) whether or not using such software changed the way they approached their analysis of qualitative data, (b) the benefits of using such programs, (c) challenges in using software in large research teams, and (d) why they only use certain parts of their software programs. The dialogue concludes with a reflection on reasons why researchers might not describe how they used a software program in their published work.
