Qualitative Research Data Analysis Software from Dedoose

Qualitative Research Data Analysis Software from Dedoose
Dedoose Video Guides Dr. Eli Lieber, of UCLA’s Center for Culture and Health, provides a quick overview of qualitative and mixed methods research and shows how these approaches are enhanced when implementing Dedoose for data management, excerpting and coding, and analysis. Contemporary social science researchers appreciate that taking multiple perspectives when investigating a research problem can yield more complete insights and more fully represent the complexity of the social world. Accordingly, increasing numbers of researchers are crossing disciplinary boundaries and conducting more and more mixed methods research. Dedoose was designed to make this process efficient and effective in order to support the collaborative nature of modern social science research projects.
