Description: QSR NUD*IST (Non numerical Unstructured Data Indexing Searching and Theorizing) is a software system for the development, support and management of qualitative data analysis projects. Retrievals use a complete set of Boolean operators on the indexing categories, as well as a set of non-Boolean operators which encourage the generation of and exploration of theories. Retrievals are added back into the indexing system, through NUD*IST's 'system closure' feature, as additional indexing categories, and are available as the basis of further and more abstracted retrievals. To support emerging theory, indexing categories are independent objects which may be modified, titled, have text comments added, and be moved to other locations in the indexing structure.

QSR Project Merge permits the merging of NUD*IST project databases. The data documents for two projects are combined into a new set of data documents which can then be merged with further projects. Macintosh and Windows projects may be merged providing they are first brought together on one platform (using the translation tool provided).

Requirements: PC running MS-Windows 3.1 or higher, or Apple Macintosh running System 7.0 or higher. 8MB RAM recommended with at least 5MB free hard disk space.
