While we are organising a conference on methods in Leipzig, we’ll continue here at the CAQDAS front. Open Code is not actually new (recent version 3.6) but we stumbled upon this piece of software just today. It is developed by the Department of Public Health and Clinical Medicine at the university of Umeå. They are focussing on the relveant: codes, memos, categories. You won’t find any wild and uncomprehensible graphics or diagrams. It might be also quite easy to use the program. Open Code is a recommendation to all of you who dislike excessive software user interfaces, who get distracted easily by unneeded functionality. Further, it is for those who know that qualitative analysis is more than pushing some buttons of a software. Unfortunately, only Windows users will enjoy the simplicity of Open Code.
