A news worthy of The Tryolabs’ Herald:
We have just proudly released to the public LibreQDA, a Qualitative Data Analysis tool that we have developed alongside with the Universitat Autónoma de Barcelona and the Universidad de la República Oriental del Uruguay.
LibreQDA is what is commonly know in the psychology area as Computer Assisted Qualitative Data Analysis Software (CAQDAS). This tool allows the users to log in, import documents from different formats and assign valuable metadata to them. Once documents are opened, the user can select portions of them, tag them and codify them using a hierarchic coding system. Using its own query engine LibreQDA can perform advanced queries in order to get relevant information and analytics.
LibreQDA is created to be an open source alternative to other Qualitative Data Analysis Software such as MAXQDA and Atlas.ti.
LibreQDA it is now available for you to check and play around in our github under the GNU - AGPL licence, here.
We have developed the basis for what we think is a great tool for Qualitative Data Analysis and we sure hope that every coding hacker out there can contribute making it even greater.
Let the forking action begin!
