Using NVivo for your Literature Review
NVivo can be an excellent tool to help with your literature review. Suggested steps include:
- Use a bibliographic reference management tool to collect your references.
- Import references and PDFs from that tool into NVivo .
- Code your articles using themes and keywords
- Query the full text of the articles to discover and/or auto-code sections of your articles.
- Annotate and use memos or notes within NVivo to store your observations and ideas .
