NVivo is an electronic lab notebook designed to help researchers organize and explore qualitative data. This kind of data analysis is typically performed on textual documents, images, as well as video and audio recordings. Using built-in analysis tools, researchers are able to map out their own project workflows, assign conceptual themes to content, visualize these themes, and take notes on their own thoughts and actions at the various stages of the research process.
NVivo Trial License:
A 14-day free trial is available from the developers of NVivo. Follow the link to download the trial version. Users who own personal computers are encouraged to sample the software through the trial.
While it is possible to download a free trial of NVivo to a personal computer, the trial period is unlikely enough time for a user to develop and analyze a robust project. With this in mind, the Florida Institute of Technology has purchased and installed NVivo 12 Professional software on several campus computers. You can find the listed below:
Evans Library -- 4 computer terminals -- 2nd floor Digital Scholarship Lab
