  1. Hi LPrice, A couple of questions: Does a single source document (interview transcript) contain data for years 1, 2 and 3, or only for a single year? You say you have 600 source documents. Are you after 600 different "profiles" ("I need to generate a "profile" of a source document...") or are you after a single profile covering all documents, which you can filter by year (or other nodes)? Kind regards,
  2. Hi Jason, This seems more of a research design question than a software question. Do you intend to do data triangulation, investigator triangulation, methodological triangulation...? Might be one to discuss further with your supervisor. Or if you'd like to discuss with other researchers, can I suggest our LinkedIn user discussion group. Regards,
  3. Hi Abby, My understanding is that the process of summarising data in the matrix is central to the Framework method (in the same way that thematic coding is central to other methodologies), and that the Framework method doesn't entail coding of the summaries themselves prior to interpretation. In NVivo, there is no capability to code summaries in a framework matrix - instead, you can create "summary links" from passages in your summaries back to specific passages in the primary text. If you do wish to code your summarised text, one workaround I can recommend is to export your framework
  4. Hi Marie, If you export your Coding Comparison Query results to Excel, perhaps you could compare the figures for "A and B (%)" with the figures for "Disagreement (%)". For example, if "A and B (%)" [positive agreement] is 30%, "Not A and Not B (%)" [negative agreement] is 60% and "Disagreement (%)" is 10%, then this means that: 40% of the Source (30% + 10%) was coded at the Node by at least one coder, and 30% of the Source was coded by both coders Therefore, of the content that was coded by at least one coder, the coders were in agreement 75% of the time (30% / 40%) Hope this helps.
  5. Hi xkou, Sorry we missed your post. Have you tried the Project Event Log feature? See here for details. Regards,
  6. Thanks for the suggestion Tom, I've logged this with our development team. Would anyone else like to see such a feature? Regards,
  7. Hi Jon, QSR does offer "student" (12 month) and "semester" (6 month) pricing for NVivo - see http://www.qsrinternational.com/quick-order.aspx I'm not sure of the terms of your university's site license, but I'd be happy to put you in touch with our business manager in the US to discuss whether there's an economical way to accommodate your teaching needs within the framework of your site license. Are you still at the University of Hawaii? Regards,
  8. Hi Jon, You can do both these things in the software already. To see the annotations in a node view, just turn on the Annotations pane via the View tab of the ribbon. (I've attached a screenshot.) You can do the same in query results. Also, text search queries will find text in annotations - for instance in your example above, if you did a text search query for "identity" (selecting Search in = "Text and annotations"), the query would find the annotated passage. You could also scope the query to search only in content coded at the node "food preferences", to combine the search for "id
  9. Thanks for the suggestion Junaid. We'll consider this for a future release of NVivo. Regards,
  10. Hi John, Here's how you can code to a node like Nodes\\Universities\Structure using the keyboard only: 1. Select the content you want to code 2. Press Ctrl+Q to go to the right-hand box of the Quick Coding toolbar 3. Type "Structure" (or just the first few characters of "Structure"). You'll see an auto-suggestion list appear with "Structure (Nodes\\Universities)" in it 4. Press the up or down arrow keys to select "Structure (Nodes\\Universities) in the auto-suggestion list 5. Press ENTER to code 6. Press Ctrl+Q again to go back to the content pane Hope this helps. Regards,
  11. Thanks for the suggestion John. A couple of others have asked for this also. I've passed your feedback on to our product development team.
  12. Thanks for the suggestion Paul. NVivo treats result nodes' coding as "read only" to preserve the fact that this node represents the answer to a particular query. However you can copy a result node to the (generic) Nodes folder, and then the copy's coding can be changed. Regards,
  13. Hi all, Good news - version 10 of NVivo includes a spell check feature. For more information on what's new in version 10, see http://forums.qsrinternational.com/index.php?showtopic=4606 Regards,
  14. Thanks for the suggestion John. Could you tell us a little bit about how you yourself use BibTeX or BibTeX files? Regards,
  15. Hi hendrik, Thanks for your questions. Problem 1 - Depending on what you mean by "with the aim of autocoding", what you may want to do is create a node hierarchy from your node matrix. Save your node matrix, select it in the list view, copy it and then paste it into the Nodes folder. This will create a node hierarchy where the individual nodes represent the cells in your matrix. Problem 2 - There are several ways to do this. One way is to create a set A containing nodes CodeA.1, CodeA.2, Code A.3, create another set B containing nodes CodeB.1, CodeB.2 etc. and then create a matrix
  16. Hi shiphra. No, datasets are not editable in NVivo 10. Regards,
  17. Hi alexquse, If you're working with Dataset (spreadsheet) sources in NVivo, there are a number of specific performance improvements in NVivo 10. You'll notice that working and scrolling in the Dataset view is faster (due to fewer rows being kept in memory at once), as well as speed improvements in classifying and autocoding Datasets, opening nodes that code Datasets, and running coding queries where Datasets are in the scope. Or if by "dataset" you're referring to your project data as a whole, you'll also notice performance improvements in NVivo 10 - of the order of 30% faster tha
  18. Thanks for the suggestions Leonardo. Regards,

  22. So at the moment you're doing a text search query like "search for * in [Annotations] of [All Sources]"?
