Rutgers has NVivo 12 available for both Mac and Windows. All faculty, staff, and students can use the program, and you need to log in with your Rutgers NetID. For those who prefer to use NVivo 11, you would have to purchase the license key.
After expiry, you will need to download a new license from the Rutgers Software Portal site. Check back periodically for updated versions of NVivo in the Rutgers Software Portal.
Sources are your research materials, such as documents, PDFs and charts.
Coding is the process of collecting material by theme, case or topic.
Nodes are containers for your coding that represent themes, topics, or other concepts.
Cases are containers for your coding that represent your "units of observation".
Case Classifications allow you to record information about cases.
There are three editions of NVivo software: NVivo Starter, NVivo Pro, and NVivo Plus. Each edition features a different level of functionality to support a range of research needs.
NVivo Starter has all the functionality you need to work with text-based material such as documents and PDFs. This version is best for new users and those only working with text.
NVivo Pro and Plus can analyze all data types, including charts, diagrams and maps, and also support working as a team. For analyzing social media content, you can only use NVivo Plus.
