Book Recommendation: Qualitative Data Analysis with NVivo (3rd edition)

The 3rd edition of the Jackson and Bazeley book is a useful upgrade for all NVivo beginners. It is a project style book with really useful "takeaways" at the end of each chapter. Those takeaways combined, are a great tips and hints list for working your way through NVivo.

Most people don't realise you can use NVivo to analyse social media data such as Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn, and there is a useful chapter on this in the book. The NCapture tool, also highlighted, is one of the most underutilised tools in NVivo. It enables the user to easily capture web content.

Understanding cases and classifications is one of the most difficult thing in using NVivo, and there is a really great chapter explaining how you might set these up.

These feed into matrices, which is why you use software like NVivo. To get beyond the question of "I've done my coding, where do I go from here?"

Overall, grab this book from your university library or get a copy you can highlight and refer to in the long term.

The book is available from Amazon AU.
