Computer aided qualitative research: a NUD*IST 4 approach

Lamont-Mills, Andrea (2005) Computer aided qualitative research: a NUD*IST 4 approach. In: Methods of research in sport sciences: quantitative and qualitative approaches. Myer & Myer Sport, Oxford, U.K., pp. 741-753. ISBN 978-1-84126-133-1


The aim of this chapter is to demonstrate the logic underpinning one particular code-based theory-builder, NUD*IST 6 which is produced by QSR International Pty Ltd. NUD*IST stands for Non-numerical Unstructured Data Indexing Searching and Theorising. The choice to discuss NUD*IST 6 is driven by my familiarity with the program. I used NUD*IST 6 in my Doctoral dissertation and extracts from this research will be used to illustrate points made during this chapter. The chapter will begin with a brief discussion regarding computer-aided analysis in qualitative research. A brief outline of what this chapter will not cover will then be presented. The main body of the chapter illustrates the logic and flexibility of the NUD*IST 6 program by contrasting the two interlocking data systems associated with the program, the document system and the index system. The chapter concludes with some limitations of the NUD*IST 6 program.
