NVivo Qualitative Project Book by Patricia Bazeley

Book Description

'A great basic book, which can be used by the novice qualitative researcher. The advice is friendly, almost folksy with clear conceptual explanation of how the program works. A very welcome contribution to this field' - Martha Ann Carey, Albert Einstein College of Medicine, New York 'Qualitative researchers continue to be criticized because they rely too much on their own interpretations and avoid analytical and theoretical issues. This book provides ways to integrate the thinking about a project and the data you have with practical ways that the software can facilitate the process. I recommend it for both the new user as well as the experienced one' - Marilyn Lichtman, Forum for Qualitative Social Research - follow the link below to read the complete review This book invites readers to learn how to use qualitative data analysis software in the context of doing their research project. The reader follows basic steps for creating and conducting a real project with real data, using the new-generation software package, QSR NVivo. The software tools are introduced only as needed and explained in the framework of what is being asked. The reader is the craftsperson, trialling those tools in the processes of getting started, tentative interpretation, drawing links, shaping data, and seeking and establishing explanations and theories. The NVivo Qualitative Project Book allows the researcher to work through their own project, or work with data provided from a real project. The authors draw on decades of experience of research and training researchers around the world, and take the reader through each step in a style combining informality and authority, with frequent tips and reflections on what is being done. Demonstration software is provided on the enclosed CD-ROM, with data to help create (a researcher's project) a project about researchers and researching, and with multiple stages arranged sequentially in the development of a real project. As a practical tool to help researchers understand qualitative data analysis software using NVivo, and a guide through the sometimes complex processes of doing a research project, this book will be invaluable reading for researchers and students undertaking qualitative research. Pat Bazeley provides training and consulting services in research design and data analysis through her company, Research Support. Lyn Richards is Director of Research Services at Qualitative Solutions and Research, the developers of NUD*IST and NVivo software. NVivo is distributed by Scolari, SAGE Publications Software.

Author Biography - Patricia Bazeley

Pat Bazeley was awarded a PhD in community psychology for an action research based thesis which argued that community development was an effective strategy for the promotion of mental health in a disadvantaged population. After graduating she worked in community development and as a freelance researcher, undertaking projects in public health, welfare, education, law and community studies. From 1991-9 she was responsible for research development and administration for academic staff at the University of Western Sydney, Macarthur. Currently, she is a part-time Associate Professor in the Centre for Primary Health Care and Equity at the University of New South Wales. Through her company, Research Support P/L, Pat provides research consulting and retreat facilities for researchers at Bowral, in the southern highlands of NSW. Additionally, she provides training and consulting services for academics, graduate students and practitioners in universities, government departments and commercial organizations both locally and internationally. Her particular expertise is in helping researchers to make sense of both quantitative and qualitative data and in using computer programs for management and analysis of data. Her passion is to help people move beyond simple descriptive analyses of rich data.Pat has a particular interest in mixed methods research, where she is exploring tools and techniques for integrating analyses of different forms of data, and the methodological implications of doing so. She has served as an Associate Editor of the Journal of Mixed Methods Research and has published books, chapters and articles on qualitative and mixed methods data analysis. She has also published on immunization services, and on the career development and performance of researchers. Pat's own research has been focused in two quite different substantive areas: around the motivation, development, performance and careers of researchers; and in public/community health issues. She has a particular interest in mixed methods research, where she is exploring tools and techniques for integrating analysis of qualitative and quantitative data, and the methodological implications of doing so. Pat has served as an Associate Editor of the Journal of Mixed Methods Research, reviews articles and research proposals for a wide range of journals and international funding bodies, and has published books, chapters and articles on qualitative and mixed methods data analysis. She has also published on immunisation services, and on the career development and performance of researchers. Lyn Richards has a highly unusual range of relationships with qualitative research. After undergraduate training as a Historian and Political Scientist, she moved to Sociology. Her early work as a family sociologist addressed both popular and academic audiences, with a strong motivation always to make the funded research relevant to the people studied, and the qualitative analysis credible to those affected. Each of her four books in family sociology was a text at university level but also widely discussed in popular media and at community level. During her tenure as Reader and Associate Professor at La Trobe University in Melbourne, she won major research grants, presented and published research papers, was a founding member of a qualitative research association and taught qualitative methods at undergraduate and graduate level, supervising Masters and PhD students. She strayed from this academic pathway when challenges with handling qualitative data in her family and community studies led to the development, with Tom Richards, of what rapidly became the world's leading qualitative analysis software. They left the university to found a research software company, in which for a decade Lyn was Director of Research Services, writing software documentation and managing international teaching of the methods behind the software. Designing and documenting software taught her to confront fuzzy thinking about methods, and to demand straight talking, clarity of purpose, detail of technique and a clear answer always to "Why would we want to do that?" Teaching methods to thousands of researchers in dozens of disciplines in 14 countries, she learned what worked and what didn't. From those researchers, graduates and faculty in universities and research practitioners in the world beyond, she learned their many ways of handling data, on and off computers, and their strategies for making sense of data. Handling Qualitative Data is a direct result of this experience. It offers clear, practical advice for researchers approaching qualitative research and wishing to do justice to rich data. Like her previous book, with Janice Morse, Readme First, for a user's guide to qualitative methods it strongly maintains the requirements of good qualitative research, assumes and critiques the use of software and draws on practical work, helping researchers whose progress has been hindered by confusion, lack of training, mixed messages about standards and fear of being overwhelmed by rich, messy data. Throughout this hybrid career, Lyn continued contributions to critical reflection on new methods, as a writer and a keynote speaker in a wide range of international conferences. She has life membership of the International Sociological Association and its Methodology section. Her writing aims always to cut through barriers to high quality qualitative research and to assist researchers and teachers in making the inevitable shift to computing whilst maximizing the benefits for their research processes and outcomes. On leaving software development, she took an Adjunct Professorship at RMIT University where she is now Associate Research Fellow of the Centre for Applied Social Research (CASR) and coordinates an active, informal and splendidly supportive qualitative research network group.
