Dedoose Version 1 Launched! – Web 2.0 research software

Dedoose is here and was designed by professional academic researchers for a wide range of research in the social sciences. Also, because collaboration and
low-cost are fundamental to its design, Dedoose is ideal for team research and
classroom applications in the teaching of research
methods.
Web 2.0 research software?

Web 2.0 means Dedoose is built on cutting edge technologies that facilitate data security, easy to use but powerful features, and
anytime/anywhere access.

Drs. Tom Weisner and Eli Lieber have been working for many years to develop methods for qualitative and mixed method research in the social
sciences. They and their team have developed new software for managing,
analyzing, and visualizing social science research data. As we watch
technologies advance, we keep dreaming about how to take advantage of this
growth. The dreaming is over, the hard work is behind us, and Dedoose has
arrived as a truly innovative, advanced, strong, fast, easy-to-use, and
feature-packed application–all for as little as $10.95 per month. You can learn (and see) more
about Dedoose in the videos and other content
on our new website: Dedoose.com.
The Dedoose design is ideal for qualitative or mixed methods research (including sentiment analysis capabilities). Among it strengths
are:
  • Web 2.0 application
    • No software to purchase, download, install, maintain, or upgrade
    • Platform independent–PC, Mac, … (any computer with an Internet browser is ready to tap
      into all the power of Dedoose)
    • Collaboration optimized–multiple users can work together anytime, anywhere, and in real-time
    • Low and flexible license fees
  • Easy to learn and use–no need for costly training workshops or extensive
    tutorials
  • Genuine mixed methods design–seamless integration of qualitative and quantitative data
    facilitates analysis and understanding from any number of
    perspectives
  • Import and Export using common file formats
  • Interactive, automatically generated, presentation-ready graphics
    • Compelling and informative
    • Immediate guides to identify patterns in your data
    • Easily work in-depth with underlying qualitative data and coding
      activity

Migrating from other software?
If you are a current EthnoNotes user (the Dedosse predecessor), we will migrate your project to Dedoose for no cost. If you use Atlas.ti, NVivo,
MAXQDA, or other software for qualitative or mixed method data analysis we can
set your existing project up in Dedoose for as little as $150. Please let us
know when you are ready to make the move and we’ll get on it so you can start
working in the Dedoose environment as soon as
possible.
Here’s a small taste of the myriad of Dedoose features. Dedoose is dynamic, so please
