E: Memos


Memos are a classical, central instrument of qualitative text analysis and are especially significant in Grounded Theory. The functionality of memos in MAXQDA has been extended far beyond the known possibilities of “tacking on“ information to a text. MAXQDA gives the researcher highly effective and, at the same time, user-friendly options to create memos in various ways, to always have access to them, to administer them, and also to conduct lexical searches on all of them.

Memos can be assigned to a project, a document group, a document, text segments, or a code. Like the well-know Post-It notes, memos are illustrated in yellow.
