Open Ethnographer will only have simple analysis features in the 1.0 version in 2015-02. Analysis will instead happen in an external QDA tool, similar to how we did it for Spot the Future. This task is to find the best-fitting QDA tool for this. Requirements:
- free and open source software
- providing multiple user account, each with a different workspace (so, allowing each user to work on a separate set of texts and codings)
- being an overall good QDA tool for ethnographers
There is already a list of candidate QDA tools, and other candidates and their evaluation can simply be added to that wiki. @Matthias’ current favorite from a tech point of view is CATMA, so it would be great if @Inga_Popovaite could test that first (there is an online demo).
