What is NVivo?

NVivo is a platform for analysing unstructured data. It helps you to organise, explore and share your work easily and quickly.

Whatever your materials, whatever your field, whatever your approach, NVivo provides a workspace to help you at every stage of your project - from organising your material, through to analysis, and then sharing and reporting.

With NVivo you can deeply analyse your data using powerful search, query and visualisation tools. Uncover subtle connections, add your insights and ideas as you work, rigorously justify findings, and effortlessly share your work.

  • Businesses use NVivo in pilot studies, program evaluation and to inform decision-making.
  • Academics use NVivo to produce rigorous research.

Discover how NVivo could support you

Your project

Everyone’s project is unique. Your information could come in many formats and languages, and you may be working alone, with a supervisor or as part of a team. Whatever your data, whatever your working arrangement, NVivo lets you work your way.

Your approach

You might use a specific research methodology or process, or you may have your own unique approach. You may want to take a high level view, or explore the subtlest themes in the detail. Regardless of your approach, NVivo has the flexibility to help.

Your workspace

NVivo’s workspace is designed using Microsoft user interface guidelines, so it looks familiar and is easy to use. There’s also a range of resources to get you started and keep you on track. From video tutorials to guides and online help - you’ll be up and running in no time.

Work with your information

NVivo handles virtually any data, including Word documents, PDFs, audio files, database tables, spreadsheets, videos, pictures and web data. And you can interchange information between NVivo and other applications like Microsoft Word and Excel, IBM SPSS Statistics, SurveyMonkey, Mendeley, Evernote and EndNote.

Analysing a survey that has open ended responses? Use NVivo to explore this sort of data. NVivo can easily work alongside statistical packages – so you get a complete view of what the data is telling you.

Make sense of your information

NVivo’s powerful query tools let you uncover subtle trends, and automated analysis features let you sit up above your data and drill down into it. For example, search for an exact word or words that are similar in meaning to quickly test theories or to direct you to the areas that need further analysis. This can be helpful when you’re working with lots of data.

Prefer pictures to words? With NVivo you can display connections, ideas and findings using visualisation tools such as charts, maps and models. What’s more, you can easily view the live data behind them.

Share and present your findings

Want to share your findings with others? Your conclusions, query results, models and charts can all be exported or simply copied and pasted into reports and presentations. NVivo also lets you export your findings as web pages, so you can share files and findings with clients or colleagues who don’t have NVivo.
