Whether you are a qualitative or quantitative researcher, EndNote and NVivo can help with the process of writing a literature review. EndNote users can export existing libraries (with attached pdfs) into NVivo so that all the bibliographic data is included. You can then use NVivo to search all of your papers in one go for a particular word (or related words), code passages of text so that you can analyse them together, graphically explore the most used terms and much more.
By the end of the workshop you will be able to:
- Import references and PDFs into EndNote and export them into NVivo
- Search all PDFs for words and related words
- Code passages of text under particular themes so that they can be analysed together
- Graphically analyse bibliography data to show patterns
