  1. I've been looking out for similar info on the autocoding process lately and the only description of how the thematic coding works I've been able to find is in the Nvivo manual here: http://help-nv11.qsrinternational.com/desktop/concepts/how_auto_coding_themes_works.htm. This identifies that the process as per text pasted below and then explains a little further. Anyone found any other assessments (peer reviewed or otherwise?) of the autocoding process yet? Having used it myself for a couple of months now it seems to find all the things I would search for myself (and a lot I don't nee
  2. Just in case anyone else finds this issue. QSR did some fault finding (thanks Heather and Bhupesh) and it turns out there was a special character in the title of one of the items in the reference list of one article/.pdf. The steps in the workaround to correct this at the moment are as per the below. For information, it looked like it was 2 .pdfs (out of about 100 I am working with) that were problematic, but it turned out to only be one as the autocoding stopped when it hit the problem in the one problematic .pdf. Hope this saves some searching and befuddlement for someone els
  3. Yes, I agree with JSG. I've tried the solutions you've mentioned above Jennifer, and these seem to be set up to do analysis within a source or node, not between sources or nodes. For example, in the data set I am working with, I have autocoded a series of journal articles and it would be helpful to be able to visualise the frequency and intensity of overlap between nodes. When any source is coded for "change" for example, it would be helpful to see how often sources are coded to other nodes. I've tried cluster analysis but haven't got it to quite do this yet. I suppose what I am lookin
  4. Hi Team, I am using autocoding as the first step in my analysis of a range of literature (.pdf Internals), and running the autocoding both within sources from a journal and then across multiple journals to check the consistency of coding and variation between journals. I have 4 journals, each with a number of articles (ranging from 4 to 47 per journal) which totals 100 internals for the analysis across all the journals. All records were exported from Endnote as .xml and then imported to Nvivo through the endnote import functionality, and classified and coded accordingly. I have run
  5. Hi dBane, Actually, the fact that there is double the entries probably tells you the import has worked correctly. When you import from Endnote (EN) Nvivo creates an Internal OR external AND a memo based on an individual EN record. Nvivo then adds the bibliographic data to all the source items created as classification attributes - so you don't actually see a reference record or source in Nvivo that looks the same as what it does in Endnote unless you look at the source classification sheet for the Reference source type. This means that as Heather said above, if you have abstract/ke
  6. Thanks Andrew, this is a reasonable work around though quite time consuming and takes a bit of practice to get consistently right. I've found for small numbers of updated references it's easier to import a new internal (.pdf), classify it as a reference and link it to the relevant memo and external manually. Cheers, Elizabeth G
  7. A quick update here. I have discovered that you can at least see the record number in Nvivo if you import references using the Author (Year) format for the references (not the Title format), which results in references with attached internals etc that look like what's in the attachment . This inclusion of the EN record number in the title is handy for checking the consistency of the data imported and distinguishing easily between sources by the same author/s. This still does not result in a classification attribute of EN record number. I've also tried including the EN record number as data
  8. Hi Team, My second question for today is also about endnote - my bibliographic records are central to the design of my systematic literature review, which means that I need to set up each endnote reference as an individual case node in Nvivo and code/link other items about the same article to that case. This is partly because I need to export multiple versions of my data from Endnote to Nvivo to separate out the abstracts from other 'notes' and to identify individual authors etc. So my question is - where can I find the Endnote record number in Nvivo after import so that I can use it t
  9. Hi Team, I have many references with both endnote bibliographic data and associated .pdfs. I have been trying to import both together through the Data/FromOtherSources/Endnote wizard, and I think I am following the instructions/set up correctly from here: http://help-nv11.qsrinternational.com/desktop/procedures/exchange_data_between_nvivo_and_reference_management_tools.htm?rhsearch=endnote&rhsyns=%20#Understand_how_files_associated_with_references_are_handled and here: http://help-nv11.qsrinternational.com/desktop/concepts/about_document_and_pdf_sources.htm. I have also checked the
