  1. Not just lit reviews Using Nvivo to organize your research

    materials Alberto Lusoli, Simon Fraser University. School of Communication
  2. Use Nvivo to organize your research materials Using Classification to

    organize files Using Nvivo to extract social media data
  3. Files So far we have used the Files folder to

    store the papers we wanted to read and code. However, we can use this section to also store the documents produced in the course of our research.
  4. Files In this example I have moved all my papers

    into a “Theory” folder and created another root-level folder for my research data (interviews, meetings, datasets).
  5. Files So far we have always imported files. However, we

    can also create new files directly within Nvivo.
  6. Files We can create simple text documents. Audio files (audio+text,

    useful for interviews) Video files (video + text) All media types can be coded
  7. Files classification Not all files are identical. We might want

    or need to differentiate them. For instance, academic papers are not the same as my interview transcripts, although they are both textual files. Besides living on different folders, they have different “Attributes” (meta-data). This is why we might want to classify all our materials.
  8. Files classification If you have imported a reference from Zotero,

    you should already have one File Classification: Reference. In this classification you will find all the attributes created in Zotero (i.e. bibliographic information). However, you can create new ones. Created automatically by Zotero
  9. Custom classification You can use one of the built-in Nvivo

    classification or create a custom one. Created automatically by Zotero
  10. Built-in classification Files classification Right click on the blank space

    Select New Classification Pick a classification from the list of built-in templates
  11. Custom classification Files classification Right click on the blank space

    Select New Classification Create a New Classification You New Classification will appear on the Classification panel. Right click on the New Classification to add Attributes. Create the attributes you need to classify your material
  12. Applying classification If you go back to your Files, you

    will now be able to classify your data using one of the classifications just created.
  13. Applying classification Right click on a file Select Document Properties

    (or Audio Properties or Video Properties depending on the kind of file) Move to Attribute Values Add meta data to your files
  14. How can they be used? Having good classification can help

    you in reporting your findings, or highlighting trends in the literature.
  15. None
  16. Ncapture for Nvivo Quick&Dirty application for collecting tweets, FB posts,

    youtube comments and webpages Install the Chrome Extension
  17. Ncapture for Nvivo When done, you should see a new

    icon on your extensions list (click the More Option if it does not appear in the toolbar)
  18. Supported data Webpages (PDF) Twitter tweets (hashtags, individual profiles tweets)

    FB pages posts and comments Youtube comments (PC version only)
  19. Capturing a page Go to the page you want to

    capture Click on the Ncapture Select Webpage as PDF Check the progress in the Chrome Capture page In Nvivo, go to Sources > internal And click Import from Ncapture If the captured page does not appear in the list, check the “Import From” folder (should be the same as your browser download folder
  20. Capturing Tweets Login on your Twitter account Search for something

    or visit a Twitter profile page Click the Ncapture Icon Select “Tweets as Dataset” Authorize the App Check progress page (stop the collection as some point..) Go to Nvivo and, as done previously, import the Dataset as an Internal Source
  21. Capturing Tweets Login on your Twitter account Search for something

    or visit a Twitter profile page Click the Ncapture Icon Select “Tweets as Dataset” Authorize the App Check progress page (stop the collection as some point..) Go to Nvivo and, as done previously, import the Dataset as an Internal Source
  22. Capturing FB posts Go to a Facebook page (while being

    logged in) and follow the same steps done for Twitter. Collect as Dataset Authorize the app Let NCapture collect data Import the Dataset as an Internal source in Nvivo Can you think of privacy and confidentiality issues?
  23. Gephi integration SNA tool. You can use tweet networks Need

    training? Research Common!
