HyperRESEARCH is a computer software program used for conducting qualitative research or qualitative data analysis.

Description and usage[edit]

HyperRESEARCH is used by qualitative researchers in areas such as health care, legal, sociology, anthropology, music, geography, geology, education, theology, philosophy, history, market research, focus group analysis and most other fields using qualitative research approaches.

HyperRESEARCH enables coding and retrieval of source material, theory building, and analyses of your data. With its multimedia capabilities, HyperRESEARCH allows you to work with text, graphics, audio, and video sources. HyperRESEARCH has been in use by qualitative researchers since it was first introduced in 1991. HyperRESEARCH is fully cross-platform. You can trade your study files and sources with other HyperRESEARCH users whether they use Mac OS X or Windows.

Features overview[edit]

  • Easy-to-use interface: offers the same intuitive case-based interface on all supported platforms. It provides a turnkey solution by employing a built-in help system and several tutorials with step-by-step instructions.
  • Flexible methodologies: supports Case-base or Source-based qualitative methodologies or combinations. With flexible organization of codes from any source to any case, support for code frequencies and other code statistics, HyperRESEARCH is well suited for mix-method approaches to qualitative research.
  • Fully Cross-Platform: designed from the ground up to work well on Microsoft Windows and Apple's OS X. The HyperRESEARCH study file format and all of the various media types supported will work across operating systems.
  • Multi-Media capabilities: allows you to work with text, graphics, audio, and video source material in many popular formats.


HyperRESEARCH is developed using a natural language programming language called Transcript (on the LiveCode software platform) that provides cross-platform development across Windows, Linux, Mac OS, Web, and various mobile operating systems.
