Tips to accelerate your research: Unleashing the power of NVivo

As researchers most of us face a challenging problem: “I need to develop high-quality research that has impact to publish in high-ranking journals. The problem is, I just don’t have as much time as I really need.” This CCCM Conversation aims to present a few practical solutions to this problem. NVivo is a tool for research and writing that is poorly understood and seldom used to its full potential. It is a valuable tool for both qualitative and quantitative researchers. This session will provide a practical demonstration of some of the more advanced and subtle features of NVivo that will add value to your research and writing. Features covered include conducting advanced literature reviews, hypothesis testing, data-mining and enhanced presentation of data.

To maximise available time, please forward any burning NVivo related questions you may have to prior to the session so that we can address these during the presentation.
