Ethical approval of research projects

Research projects are increasingly subject to requirements for ethical approval by the relevant university department. This requirement stems mainly from the EU’s framework programmes and international journals, and relates specifically to projects that collect empirical data and are not covered by the Committees Act on regional scientific ethical committees, which only applies to research projects in the field of health sciences.

Introduction til NVivo 12

NVivo 12 is a tool for organizing and analyzing qualitative data such as interviews, reports, focusgroups etc. NVivo lets you classify and sort data enabling you to more easily discover connections in contrast to doing it "by hand" or on paper.

NVivo supports most major languages and data formats such as text, sound files, video, digital photos, Word, PDF, Excel etc.

The course will introduce you to:

  • Importing data (hands on examples are done with text)
  • Coding data
  • Working with cases (metadata regarding your units of analysis such as income, age, marital status etc.)
  • Basic queries (searches based on your codes/cases)

Teaching and examples will be done on the PC-version of NVivo but Mac-users are also welcome. The PC version is better and has more features than the Mac-version.

The course will take place in Nobelparken. Depending on attendees it will be held in Danish or English.
