NVIVO is a qualitative data analysis (QDA) computer software package produced by QSR International. It has been designed for qualitative researchers working with very rich text-based or multimedia information, where deep levels of analysis are required. NVIVO is used pre-dominantly by academic,government, health and commercial researchers across a diverse range of fields. NVIVO is intended to help users organize and analyze non-numerical or unstructured data. The software allows users to classify, sort and arrange information; examine relationships in the data; and combine analysis with linking, shaping, searching and modeling.


Research Center for Training & Development (RCTD) is organizing an International Research Workshop “Mastering Advanced Qualitative Data Analysis Using NVIVO” on 5th & 6th of February, 2013 (Tuesday-Wednesday) through High Definition (HD) Video Conferencing. The workshop will deliver the contents from basic level to advanced level and includes a lot of cases and exercises for hands on sessions.


The researchers from Universities, Institutes, R&D organizations and Social Sector organizations are invited to participate individually or institutional in their own auditorium/office/home from anywhere around the world. The individual participant can participate using a laptop/desktop computer connected through internet. For institutional registration and arrangements, contact us (0092322-4309974) or workshops@rctd.org.
