LINK TO THE PAPER:
Software to support qualitative research is both revered and reviled. Over
the last few decades,
users and skeptics have made competing claims about the utility, usability
and ultimate impact of
commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) software packages. This paper provides an
overview of the
debate and introduces a new web-based Coding Analysis Toolkit (CAT). It
argues that knowledgeable,
well-designed research using qualitative software is a pathway to increasing
flexibility in research.
Keywords: qualitative research; data analysis software; content analysis;
multiple coders; annotation;
adjudication; inter-rater reliability; tools
