Abstract

This chapter looks at the current state of technological support for qualitative research. Technological developments have enabled new forms of data and other analyses to be incorporated into qualitative work. The chapter focuses on technology and how it assists three main aspects of qualitative research: data collection, preparation and/or transcription; bibliographic management and systematic literature reviews; data management and analysis. The main body of the chapter discusses the functionality, role and implications of Computer Assisted Qualitative Data AnalysiS (CAQDAS) tools. Three recent trends in computer assistance are emphasized: support for visual analysis; support for mixed methods approaches; and online solutions.
