Hello all ? I am trying to figure out how to design my research recently. I have already used the Ncapture plugin to collect data from newpapers web pages and imported them to Nvivo. I put each article in it's related folder in internals folder. I got 5 keywords that i used for searching on those web pages. Internals got 5 of those keywords. All keyword folders has 6 folders representing years of these articles. 2011,2012,..,2016. And each year has 12 folders representing months of each article. January, February,..December. I would like to use matrix query for optaining visual charts, examine them and write my comments in my thesis. Also, i would like to track the changes of some topics yearly and monthly and try to explain and write about them. Now i got more than 7500 articles in internals in their mentioned folders. Nothing coded yet, no nodes yet. I have read so many things and watched so many help videos so far but i am not sure how to design my data in order to make my future work easy. Forexample should i create source nodes and apply attributes or create cases and attributes? Or my internals folders structure is able to answer my research needs? So flexible and so cool, Nvivo is initially complex eh?
Hi, I am starting up a research project using NVivo (v11 for Mac) and have some doubts as to how best to set up the project structure. Has anyone had experience with project-based analysis using NVivo? What I mean is: the object of the research is a set of design projects, each with its own set of data sets (interviews, project data, drawings, documents, etc.). In design, the term "project" refers to both the finished product and the process of designing it. Since I want to do comparative analysis between design projects, they all have to be included in the same NVivo file. My question concerns the way such a file should be structured. The sample project offered did not help for that specific question and neither did the NVivo training I had at my university. Without knowing exactly what to offer as details, here are some of them: - approx. 50 design projects in total - each project has a varying number of corresponding text, interview transcripts, image and audio/video files - some of these files may mention two or more studied projects - interviews are done with people representing municipal associations or private firms who may have been involved in multiple studied projects My hesitation stems mostly from the fact that I've used NVivo in training to gather and analyse data on one subject while in this case I see that analysis has to be done for individual design projects as well as for the whole collection. Some questions I have are: - do I set up the sources folders as individual projects (P1, P2, etc.) or as types irrespective of project (interviews, images, etc.)? - if the former, do I then create subfolders for each project for specific data types? - what are case-nodes in this example: individual projects, participants and associations/firm? Any advice would be great, or any direction toward available resources concerning this type of use of the software. Thank you!
I have generated a model demonstrating the complex relationships in my data. I click on the node box so that the arrows criss coss beneath the box rather than over the top ie in Word this would be 'send to back' function. How it appears in the Nvivo environment is not accurately represented when I export to a PDF ie the arrows criss cross both over and under node boxes. How can I correct this?
