Volume 2 provides an additional nine case studies of real-world examples that illustrate how MAXQDA is used in actual research projects. Each chapter is organized to walk the reader through the research example, beginning with an introduction to the topic, a discussion of data collection and methodological approach, and a step-by-step description of how they used MAXQDA from start to finish, gaining insights into both efficient ways to use MAXQDA and innovative approaches they might not be aware of.
