Consulting Services

   Adequate and effective use of MAXQDA in the research process:

  • Preparing data
  • Data analysis and visualization
  • Performing network meta-analysis
  • Systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized clinical trials
  • Integration of quantitative data and Visual Tools (drawings, graphs, charts, etc.)
  • Interaction with FineReader, Excel, Text2Data, SurveyMonkey, Mindomo, Mendeley, Endnote, Zotero, etc.

I can advise both teams and individuals. I offer internal services and remote sessions (via Zoom, Skype, Anydesk, etc.). Continuous collaboration in the implementation of a long-term research project and outsourcing is possible.



I have been working with MAXQDA since 2018 and I'm constantly looking for different ways to use MAXQDA to automate big data analysis and design literature reviews. This software helped me in several projects, such as my medical doctoral dissertation. Based on the materials of the dissertation, 24 publications were published, including 19 in journals recommended by the Higher Attestation Commission for publishing doctoral dissertation materials, and 6 in journals cited in the Scopus database. I received 2 patents from the Russian Federation for utility models, one patent from the Russian Federation for an invention, and one certificate of state registration of a computer program. I organize a series of lectures and practical classes for Universities in Russia & CIS and conduct private consultations in medical research.
