From Print to Pixels: Practitioners' Reflections on the Use of Qualitative Data Analysis Software.
Gilbert, Linda S.
This paper studied how individual qualitative researchers perceive that their research procedures and perspectives have been influenced by the adoption of computer assisted qualitative data software. The study focused on Nud*Ist software (non-numerical Unstructured Data; Indexing, Searching, and Theorizing). The seven participants ranged from new users to very experienced users of Nud*Ist. Participants regarded Nud*Ist as a tool, but one that needed to be learned. As they developed skill with it, their research processes were indeed changed, both directly and subtly. Overall, users thought that the software enabled them to organize their data better, which in turn enabled analysis. (Contains 19 references.) (SLD)
