Tinderbox as a QDA app (alternative to or along with Atlas.Ti or Maxqda)

(Rene Trappel) #24

Thanks for these insights. Atlas.ti has changed quite a bit since I last used it. A few questions, if I may:

  1. You seem to use it for the analysis of secondary sources (e.g. published literature). Is this a correct assumption? Is this how you read all of your literature and sources?

  2. How does it scale? One of the issues I had before was that after having importing about 100 PDFs the system got really sluggish. Same with MaxQDA.

  1. Yes; I am using it for reading published articles and books. The pdf reading experience in AtlasTi is very solid.
  2. I have about 150 documents it; it is pretty fast so far. Last time I tried (i was comparing these QDA apps for a couple of a year ago), MaxQDA felt a bit faster. NVIVO is the slowest of all.
