Analisi computer-assistita di materiale qualitativo: un approccio attraverso gli ausili informatici più comuni
| STUDI DI SOCIOLOGIA - 2008 - 4
This article aims to present a short digression, without claim for completeness, about drawbacks
and benefits connected to the use of CAQDAS (Computer Assisted Qualitative Data
Analysis Softwares) for the analysis of facts and figures from biographic interviews. Moreover,
these options could be applied as well for the analysis of different qualitative data source.
According to our opinion, and unlike the claims by some authors, the analysis of this kind of
material can not be considered scientifically viable just because performed with special software.
Then, we explained some simple tools (word processor and indexing system) which can
be found in different operating systems, to be used alongside or as alternative to CAQDAS for
the analysis of qualitative data.
