HyperRESEARCH™ Quick Tour Prepared By: Andrew, Joe, Osbert and Eagle
HyperRESEARCH™ enables us to code and retrieve, build theories, and conduct analyses of your data. Now with advanced multimedia capabilities, it allows us to work with text, graphics, audio, and video sources — making it an invaluable research analysis tool. It is a solid code-and-retrieve data analysis program, with additional theory building features provided by the Hypothesis Tester. IT has been in use by researchers in the Social Sciences and other fields since it was first introduced in 1991. The latest version incorporates features and interface design decisions inspired by years of feedback from our customers and reviewers. What is HyperRESEARCH ? It uses qualitative data analysis software package .

How does it work? Let see the demonstration below. The Study Window is the main HyperRESEARCH window, where your cases and code references are displayed. You may view the code references of one case at a time. The Study Window also shows you how many cases (index cards) are currently in your study, how many of those are selected (i.e. viewable in the Study Window – you may alter the case selection at any time, choosing to select All or by Name or by code reference Criteria), how many code references have been coded to the current case, and how many of those code references are currently selected (viewable).
With the "View Source" option selected, clicking on any code reference will recall the underlying source material. HyperRESEARCH will open the file in a Source Window, with the underlying source material highlighted. With the "View Annotation" option selected, clicking on a code reference that has been annotated will cause the Annotation Window to open, displaying the annotation that goes with the highlighted code reference. The Study Window is fully resizable and movable; you may position it any way you like on your computer screen. How does it work(2)?
Four major source window types Text Source Window You may customize the Font Settings (typeface and size) and also choose whether or not to display the codes in context (code names appearing in the left margin). This window is fully resizable and movable. You may also alter the ratio between the "margin" and the main text area when the Display Codes in Context feature is active.
Graphic Source Window The Graphic Source Window allows you to display still images (.gif or .jpg or similar graphic files) and assign codes to selected portions of the image.
Movie Source Window The Movie Source Window displays movie files using Apple's Quicktime software. You may select and code any number of frames, to be replayed when recalling the source material from the Study Window or in a hyperlinked report. Audio Source Window Audio Source Window The Audio Source Window uses Apple's Quicktime software to allow you to play back an audio file
Code List Editor The Code List Editor allows you to view and manipulate your Master Code List. You may add codes, edit codes (with changes being reflected in individual code references) and enter detailed definitions for your master codes. Annotation Window
Code Map Window The Code Map Window allows you to explore graphic representations of the relationships between your Master Codes. You may group codes in any way you wish, and visually link master code names to one another. You may select codes using your Code Map, and apply that selection to the Study Window, which will then display only those code references corresponding to the selected Master Codes. Report Window
Report Window The Report Window presents the report generation options. Use this window to customize the data you wish retrieved for a given report, then either "Display" it to your screen or "Export" it to a text file. A Displayed Report looks like this (with some variations based on the options specified for the current report):
