Abstract

The Computer Assisted Qualitative Data Analysis Software Packages (CAQDAS) can be understood as a means of assisting the researcher in the treatment, organization and analysis of qualitative data for developing research or projects that deal with qualitative data. This type of software stands out and are sought after because they allow the qualitative analysis to be done in diverse formats (audio, video, image, text), levels of collaborative work (individual, two people working at the same time or more than two), and with distinct possibilities of organizing the data surveyed. This article aims to present an integrative review about the most relevant CAQDAS in Ibero-American, highlighting the potential of (i) data organization, (ii) variety of supports, (iii) mobility, and (iv) interaction with social networks.
