Produtos

O MAXQDA é um software profissional para análise de dados qualitativos e mistos com versões idênticas tanto para Windows como para Mac. 

O MAXQDA está disponível em 3 opções:

• MAXQDA Standard (Análide de Dados Qualitativos Avançada)
• MAXQDA Plus (MAXQDA Standard + “MAXDictio” módulo para análise quantitativa de texto)
• MAXQDA Analytics Pro (MAXQDA Plus + “Stats” módulo para estatística

Visão Geral

Organize e categorize

Utilize o MAXQDA para gerir de forma mais eficiente os seus projetos de pesquisa. No MAXQDA, pode importar e analisar entrevistas, dados de grupos de discussão, de pesquisas online ou de páginas da Internet. Também pode importar imagens, ficheiros de áudio ou de vídeo, folhas de cálculo, dados bibliográficos ou até mesmo tweets do Twitter.

A nossa solução facilita a organização de ficheiros em grupos, a criação de links para relacionar diferentes citações, o compartilhamento e a comparação do trabalho realizado com outros membros da sua equipa de investigação. Projectos de análise de dados qualitativos no MAXQDA são sempre flexíveis e o seu sistema de códigos poderá ser expandido ou modificado a qualquer momento, assim como a sua pesquisa ou a análise dos seus dados.

Análise de Conteúdo

No MAXQDA é possível categorizar informações relevantes através da utilização de códigos, cores, símbolos ou mesmo emoticons. Codifique rapidamente através da função de arrastar e soltar, da codificação in-vivo, ou automaticamente depois de completar uma pesquisa por palavras. Também poderá organizar os seus pensamentos e teorias em anotações que podem ser anexadas em qualquer ponto do seus documentos, códigos ou projectos.

A extração de segmentos codificados também pode ser feita de forma rápida e eficiente: seja com um simples clique do mouse, ou com o uso de poderosas ferramentas de pesquisa para testar e desenvolver novas teorias ou simplesmente analisar os seus dados.

Transcrição de Entrevistas

Tem o controlo total no trabalho com ficheiros multimédia. Pode utilizar o MAXQDA para codificar diretamente na linha do tempo de ficheiros de áudio e vídeo. Ou transcreva manualmente os seus ficheiros multimédia para depois efetuar uma análise do texto – sempre em estreita ligação com os ficheiros originais. O MAXQDA oferece funções que facilitam muito o seu trabalho ao transcrever o texto de um áudio ou de um vídeo, como o ajuste da velocidade de reprodução ou do volume de som dos seus ficheiros. Com isso, poderá otimizar as tarefas de análise e transcrição dos seus dados de forma eficiente.

Os ficheiros multimédia são tratados como qualquer outro documento no MAXQDA. Pode, assim, codificar, extrair resultados, anotar ou especificar um peso para cada segmento da mesma forma que com segmentos em documentos de texto, por exemplo.

Ferramentas para Análises com Métodos Mistos

O MAXQDA permite que integre métodos ou dados quantitativos no seu projeto de forma aprofundada. É possível, por exemplo, estabelecer conexões entre dados qualitativos e variáveis sócio-demográficas. Da mesma forma, também pode quantificar os resultados das suas análises qualitativas ou calcular frequências estatísticas de forma simples e direta.

A versão MAXQDA Plus disponibiliza o módulo adicional MAXDictio, que possui funcionalidades de quantificação na análise de textos. Com essa função, poderá facilmente analisar o vocabulário ou o conteúdo de textos, mesmo em casos de grandes volumes de informações. A versão MAXQDA Analytics Pro é a mais avançada e possui ferramentas para a análise estatística de dados qualitativos. A versão demo do MAXQDA já é a Analytics Pro.

Ferramentas para Teste de Teorias e Visualização de Dados

Utilize o MAXQDA para criar visualizações dos seus dados de forma manual ou automática. Analise os seus dados a partir de perspectivas completamente novas, e, com isso, teste as suas teorias ou obtenha um entendimento mais aprofundado de determinados temas.

Os seus resultados podem ser compartilhados através da exportação de ficheiros de imagens que já saem totalmente preparados para a utilização em relatórios e apresentações. Além disso, pode criar mapas conceituais ou mind maps com a ferramenta integrada MAXMaps presente no nosso software para análise de dados qualitativos.

novidades

  • MAXQDA 2020.1 Update Released

MAXQDA 2020 users can now download the free update “MAXQDA 2020.1” and start using several new features! We will look at some of the feature highlights here but you can also find the complete list of the more than 50 new features, improvements, and bugfixes below.

How to update MAXQDA 2020

To install the update, follow these three easy steps:

  1. Open MAXQDA 2020 with a stable internet connection.
  2. Select the “?” query symbol in the top right-hand corner of the screen,
  3. And select “Search for Updates” from the menu.

MAXQDA will then install the new update and you can access the following new features and many more improvements for free! If you are using one of your institution’s computers and have limited admin rights, please contact your local administrator.

  • Say Hello to Spellchecking
    Find & correct spelling errors in documents and memos

You asked for it and it’s here – we are happy to present MAXQDA Spellchecking! You can now activate “Spellchecking” in the Document Browser and the Memo Editor to check and correct your texts. If MAXQDA detects an error, the word will be underlined in the text. You can then either fix the error once or everywhere in the text with one of the suggested corrections from the context menu or the Spellchecking toolbar. You can also add the word to your personal dictionary or ignore the word.

Spellchecking in MAXQDA 2020.1 is available in English (US & UK), German, and Spanish. Additional languages will be added in the future.

  • Organize Documents into Subfolders
    Add a second level to your document organization

Another popular feature request, in MAXQDA 2020.1 you can create document groups on a new sub-level in the “Document System” window. One top-level document group can now contain several sub-level document groups.

This function makes it easier to work with “cases” in research projects where one case may consist of more than one document. For example, if each interview is accompanied by several drawings made by the person being interviewed or if you have several transcripts per person, subfolders are a great new way to organize your data into cases!

  • Automatic Timestamps for Media File Transcripts
    Place timestamps evenly across transcripts

When you import a media file and the associated transcript, MAXQDA automatically recognizes timestamps in the transcript and connects them to the corresponding location in the audio or video file. With MAXQDA 2020.1 it gets even better: If you have a transcript that doesn’t contain timestamps, you can now insert them automatically in a set time interval. MAXQDA will then place the timestamps evenly across the text of the transcript, making it much easier to jump between the transcript and the media file!

  • Additional Sources for Transcript Import
    Import from Otter.ai, Simon Says, and Sonix

MAXQDA 2020 added the option to import transcripts from a large number of popular transcription services and tools. We are excited to announce that with MAXQDA 2020.1, we have extended the number of services you can use by adding a designated import option for Otter.ai, Simon Says, and Sonix. This allows you to work with the automatic transcription service of your choice, import your final transcript into MAXQDA 2020, and link the transcript to the media file via timestamps.

  • Literature Data from Citavi
    Import full articles along with bibliographical data

MAXQDA 2020.1 lets you import your literature from Citavi. This is a great new addition to the import function that allows you to import full text or PDF articles together with your bibliographical data from Endnote, Mendeley, and Zotero. With all 4 programs, MAXQDA automatically recognizes, duplicates, and gives you the option to automatically code your articles with the keywords assigned to them.

  • Elements and their connection lines created with the automatic map model builder are now placed on layers. This makes it easy to hide and show layers for presentations.
  • After merging two projects, all of the maps in the merged project are re-linked to the appropriate elements to sustain an interactive connection between documents, codes, memos, etc.
VISUAL TOOLS
  • Open up the content of a Code Relations Browser matrix in an Interactive Quote Matrix.
  • The initial selection was removed from the Code Matrix Browser and Code Relations Browser visualization, making it easier to take a screenshot. To highlight a row, simply click on an element in the matrix.
  • The text displayed below a subcode or variable chart is now initially set to hidden. You can display and edit the text by clicking on the “Display text” icon in the chart settings.
INTERFACE
  • Optimized sizing while displaying coded image segments in the Side-by-Side Display function. The images are now larger and easier to read.
  • Optimized color use while using the function “color-coded text” to change the text background to the color of the codes applied there. The colors are now more transparent to make the text easier to read, especially for dark code colors.
VARIABLES
  • Optimized handling of date/time variables while changing the computer system settings to a different date format. Date/time values in MAXQDA are now recognized and displayed in relation to the system settings.

  • You can now add a code memo to a newly-created code in the Creative Coding tool.
EXPORT
  • When you open a current display as a Word or Excel file, MAXQDA now creates a new document (instead of a temporary file) and saves it to the selected location.
  • While exporting an image document from the Document Browser, you can now choose from two image export formats: PNG and JPG.
  • New warning message while trying to export a table to DOCX that exceeds the limit of columns supported by Word documents (63 columns).
  • For better readability, the code headings in the Codebook export are now separated by two greater-than symbols (>>) instead of a backslash (\).
  • Print multiple documents at once. The print option in the Reports menu tab can now print all of the currently activated documents at once – or save them as one PDF document.

  • Fixes an issue while dragging a segment of text within a memo opened in a Memo Manager window with a reduced menu tab.
  • Fixes an issue while exporting a Crosstab matrix as an image file (.png/.svg) where the subcodes in the image were reduced to one hierarchical layer. You can now export the crosstab with the full code hierarchy again.
  • Fixes an issue while including linked code information while exporting memos from the Overview of Memos table to Word. Linked codes are now listed with each memo.
  • Fixes an issue while including the sum information in Crosstab exports. If you hide the sum in the Crosstab, it is now no longer included in the exported image.
  • Fixes an issue while moving documents via drag & drop into the Code Cloud visualization window where it was not possible to drop the documents onto the appropriate field. The documents can now be selected via drag & drop again.
  • Fixes an issue while not being able to limit an Extended Lexical Search query to the content of the Retrieved Segments window. You can now limit the search to the currently-retrieved coded segments.
  • Fixes an issue while opening a Windows media video (.wmv) in the Multimedia Browser on a Mac. MAXQDA now notifies the user that this Windows-specific format can not be viewed on a Mac.
  • Fixes an issue while recoding coded segments from the Retrieved Segments window via drag & drop where the window was emptied after dropping the segment onto a code.
  • Fixes an issue while saving a copy of a project file if the most recent edits in a currently-opened memo have not yet been saved. MAXQDA now asks if the last edits should be saved before creating a copy of the project.
  • Fixes an issue where MAXQDA used an increasing amount of memory in specific projects if the activation pattern is changed while a large number of segments is displayed in the Retrieved Segments window.
