Making Sense of Software in Qualitative Research combines several aspects of Computer Assisted Qualitative Data Analysis (CAQDAS), helping the reader choose the most appropriate package for their specific needs and get the most out of the software once they are using it. The text considers tasks and processes, bringing them together to demystify qualitative software and encourage flexible and critical choices and uses of software in supporting analysis. This text can be read as a whole or chapters can be treated on a more stand-alone basis, building on one another to provide a holistic sense of the analytic journey without advocating a particular sequential process. Accessible and comprehensive, Making Sense of Software in Qualitative Research provides a practical but analytically grounded guide to thinking about and using software and will be an essential companion for any qualitative researcher.
