1 Introduction to NVivo 7 Some user basics

2 Getting Started Creating a Project Creating a Project Gathering Data Gathering Data Creating Nodes Creating Nodes Simple Coding Simple Coding For more information and help go to: teachyourself/teach_yourself.htm For more information and help go to: teachyourself/teach_yourself.htm teachyourself/teach_yourself.htm teachyourself/teach_yourself.htm

3 Creating a Project Your project will be stored on your “My Documents” folder as an.nvp file. Your project will be stored on your “My Documents” folder as an.nvp file. Open QSR (NVivo 7). Open QSR (NVivo 7). Open “New Project” Open “New Project” In the “Title” field, enter a name for your project In the “Title” field, enter a name for your project Now you may save this project again to a different file if you want it somewhere other than “My Documents.” Now you may save this project again to a different file if you want it somewhere other than “My Documents.”

4 New Project save screen

5 My New Project (sample)

6 Gathering Source Material Data sources include: hand-written diaries, images, interview transcripts Data sources include: hand-written diaries, images, interview transcripts Importing data: Importing data: Types:.txt files, rich text, or Word (.doc) files Types:.txt files, rich text, or Word (.doc) files Documents may be created directly in NVivo Documents may be created directly in NVivo Create “externals” for audio or video files, hand written diaries, books, newspaper articles, etc. Create “externals” for audio or video files, hand written diaries, books, newspaper articles, etc. Create/import memos to record thoughts and observations (e.g. journal or log entries about progress of project) Create/import memos to record thoughts and observations (e.g. journal or log entries about progress of project)

7 Gathering Data--details Importing: Importing: Open “Documents” folder Open “Documents” folder On “Project” menu—click “Import Documents” On “Project” menu—click “Import Documents” In “Import from” field—click “Browse” In “Import from” field—click “Browse” Locate documents you wish to import Locate documents you wish to import Click—”Open” Click—”Open” Select type of “Option” and Click “Ok” Select type of “Option” and Click “Ok” “Update Text Styles” “Update Text Styles” “Create Descriptions” “Create Descriptions” “Code Sources at Cases” “Code Sources at Cases” “Create as Read-Only” “Create as Read-Only”

8 Importing documents—step 1 Open “Documents” folder On “Project” menu—click “Import Documents”

9 Importing documents—step 2 In “Import from” field—click “Browse” Locate documents you wish to import, click “ok”

10 Importing documents—step 3 Now your document will fill the “Import from” field, select “option” and click “ok”

11 Importing Documents—step 4 You may choose to record a description of this file, click “ok”

12 Creating Nodes If you have themes you want to explore in your data, then you are ready to create nodes (codes) If you have themes you want to explore in your data, then you are ready to create nodes (codes) Simple Tree Nodes (general themes and their related sub-themes) Simple Tree Nodes (general themes and their related sub-themes) In “Navigation View” click—”Nodes” In “Navigation View” click—”Nodes” Click “Tree Nodes” Click “Tree Nodes” Click “New” Click “New” Click “Tree Node in this Folder” option Click “Tree Node in this Folder” option Enter the node name (e.g. ‘communication’ or ‘distancing practices’ or ‘openness’) Enter the node name (e.g. ‘communication’ or ‘distancing practices’ or ‘openness’) Click—”Ok” Click—”Ok” To add sub-theme nodes under this node: To add sub-theme nodes under this node: Click—the parent node (e.g. ‘communication’ or ‘openness’) Click—the parent node (e.g. ‘communication’ or ‘openness’) Click—”New” on the Main toolbar Click—”New” on the Main toolbar Click—”Tree Node in this Folder” Click—”Tree Node in this Folder” Enter—name of sub-theme node and description Enter—name of sub-theme node and description Click—”Ok” Click—”Ok”

13 Creating Nodes—step 1 Click “Nodes” 2 4

14 Creating Nodes—Step 2 Click “Tree Nodes”

15 Creating Nodes—Step 3 Under “New”, Click “Tree Node in this Folder”

16 Creating Nodes—Step 4 “New Tree Node” will open, type in name of node, description, click “ok”

17 Creating Sub Nodes—Step 1 Click ‘parent’ node--communication

18 Subnodes—Step 2 Click “new”, then “Tree Node in this Folder”—then name sub node in “Name” field of “New Tree Node” box, add description, click “ok”

19 Sub nodes—Step 3 Sub node will appear beneath parent node

20 Nodes and Sub nodes—finished list

21 Simple Coding Open the source you want to code in “Detail View.” Open the source you want to code in “Detail View.” Open the required node folder to display the nodes in “List View.” Open the required node folder to display the nodes in “List View.” Select the source content by highlighting it (hold the mouse button to highlight) and drag and drop it in the required node. Select the source content by highlighting it (hold the mouse button to highlight) and drag and drop it in the required node. Content is now coded at the appropriate node. Content is now coded at the appropriate node.

22 Simple Coding—Step 1 Open Sources and double click on document to open transcript

23 Simple Coding—Step 2 (optional) You may choose to move Nodes to a vertical display: “View >Detail View >Right”

24 Simple Coding—Step 3 Highlight text you want to code, drag and drop into appropriate Node

25 Simple Coding—Step 4 Double click on Node to open page and view coded text

26 Additional Capabilities of NVivo You can display “Code Stripes” You can display “Code Stripes” You can find “Project Items” You can find “Project Items” You can “Query your Data” You can “Query your Data” You can “Create Models” You can “Create Models” You can create “Reports” You can create “Reports” NVivo allows for in-depth analysis—go to the QSR website for on-line support and further information: NVivo allows for in-depth analysis—go to the QSR website for on-line support and further information: um/qsr_forum.htm um/qsr_forum.htm
