ATLAS.ti User Conference 2013

Fostering Dialog on Qualitative Methods

Friese, Susanne (Editor); Ringmayr, Thomas G. (Editor); Max Planck Institute for the Study of Religious and Ethnic Diversity (Organisation)

The conference proceedings on the first international ATLAS.ti user conference brings together twenty articles from researchers around the world on various aspects of using the software in different research areas, on methodological issues and on issues around teaching and training. The article by Heiner Legewie provides a historic flashback on the ATLAS project and on how it all began at the Technical University of Berlin, Germany, back in 1989. Today, 25 years later, ATLAS.ti users often ask for publications that describe the implementation of ATLAS.ti in research projects. With the present volume, we hope to provide some answers. In reviewing and preparing the articles for publication, the authors were encouraged to provide a detailed description of how ATLAS.ti was implemented in their research projects. You also find a number of articles on the application of various methodologies in combination with ATLAS.ti. A common myth is that ATLAS.ti is a “grounded theory” software. You will find that indeed Grounded Theory is one of the methodologies that is applied, but you will also find other approaches like ethnographic content analysis, multimodal rhetorical analysis, discourse analysis, deductive critical discourse analysis or abduktive thematic analysis. If you are interested in integrating ATLAS.ti in your university teaching, you find some examples on how this is done, some of the lessons learned and some good practice tips. In addition to the written format, you can get to know most of the authors by watching their live conference presentations.
