Intro & Info News How to get started Login & start working

QCAmap can be used within research projects in e.g. Psychology, Sociology, Education, Economics, Linguistic Sciences, to analyze small and large amounts of any text material and images coming from interviews, group discussions, observation protocols, documents, open-ended questionnaire items and others. Qualitative Content Analysis is a strictly rule-guided procedure containing qualitative steps (assignment of categories to text passages and images) and quantitative steps (analysis of category frequencies).
