Dr Kristi Jackson focuses on the use of NVivo in a diverse array of health, education, public policy and corporate/commercial research via her role as consultant, coach, analyst, and principal investigator. With over 25 years of experience in qualitative research design, data collection, analysis, reporting, and stakeholder relations, she is an expert in a diverse array of qualitative methodologies. Kristi's theoretical frames tend to be sociological and her research interests include conceptualizations of qualitative research transparency and the constantly changing spaces where qualitative researchers and technologies meet. Pat Bazeley provides research training and consulting to academics, graduate students, and practitioners from a wide range of disciplines and settings both locally and internationally. She has worked in community development, project consulting, and in academic research development. Pat helps researchers to design for and make sense of data generally, and to manage and analyse qualitative and mixed methods data in particular. She has published on qualitative and mixed methods analysis and on the career development and performance of researchers.
Jackson and Bazeley showcase their state-of-the-art expertise in NVivo through this well organized, meticulously cross-referenced text. It is a reader-friendly introduction to the functions and features of the software and provides insightful, detailed guidance for researchers integrating data collection and analysis with digital technology.-- Johnny Saldana
Qualitative Data Analysis with NVivo is a valuable reference for anyone undertaking computer-assisted qualitative data analysis. Whether a novice or experienced researcher, the book walks you through step-by-step how to apply the tools of NVivo to a vast array of qualitative methods. Its strength lies in the detailed methodological explanations and examples - not just technical how to. This enables researchers to learn how to apply the NVivo tools to their research and not let the software drive the research. It is easy to read and follow, clearly structured and well referenced. I will be encouraging its use for all my students.-- Linda Sweet
Grounded in theory and with a clear structure, this book is ideal for students and researchers wanting to use NVivo in their projects. The many functions of NVivo are clearly explained with interesting, practical examples - the perfect project companion.-- Patty Doran
