Welcome to a new issue of Inside ATLAS.ti. In this issue we update you on what has been going on this fall in terms of software development and the partnerships that we have with institutions worldwide. As ATLAS.ti is growing constantly, we would like to invite consultants, heavy users and resellers from all over the world to get in touch with us to discuss opportunities for partnership, jobs and collaboration.
Further in this issue of Inside ATLAS.ti, we profile two projects that are using ATLAS.ti in their data analysis: one by Sean Pritchard, who used the program to analyze the data of his doctoral dissertation titled Mindfulness and Beyond: A Qualitative Study of Advanced Mahasi Meditators’ Experience. The other one is a study in health prevention with farmworkers in California, USA, implemented by the California Institute of Rural Studies (CIRS). Additionally, in this November issue of Inside ATLAS.ti we let you know about the many webinars and courses we offer for the period between November and February 2017.
Note on ATLAS.ti 8
As we work on making final necessary adjustments, ATLAS.ti 8 for Windows will be released in early December 2016. Beta testing will also be extended. Once released, ATLAS.ti 8 for Windows will transform your experience as a user of our leading software for qualitative data analysis. An exciting interface, a revamped network tool, new powerful analysis and visualization procedures, and the ability to work with data from Twitter, Evernote, Endnote and other reference management software are some of the highlights of ATLAS.ti 8 for Windows. Video tutorials on ATLAS.ti 8 Windows will be available here at the time of release.
