ulqda is a LaTeX package for use in Qualitative Data Analysis research.
It supports the integration of Qualitative Data Analysis (QDA) research tasks,
specifically for Grounded Theory, into the LaTeX work flow. 

It assists in the analysis of textual data such as interview transcripts
and field notes by providing the LaTeX user with macros which 
are used to markup textual information - for example, in-depth 
interviews - in order to facilitate the distillation of emerging 
themes from the data in a consistent and reliably manner, and to 
support visualization of these themes.  

ulqda requires the use of pdfeTeX.  The following LaTeX packages, 
available on http://www.ctan.org/ are needed by the ulqda 
 * soul.sty
 * color.sty
 * multicol.sty
 * PGF/TikZ 
 * dot2texi.sty

In addition, the following external tools are required for processing
and graph/list generation:
 * GraphViz (http://www.graphviz.org)
 * dot2tex (http://www.fauskes.net/code/dot2tex/}
 * Perl and the Digest::SHA1 module

I have tested the package on Fedora running TeX Live 2008 and on 
Windows 7 running MiKTeX.

ulqda – Sup­port of Qual­i­ta­tive Data Anal­y­sis

The pack­age is for use in Qual­i­ta­tive Data Anal­y­sis re­search. It sup­ports the in­te­gra­tion of Qual­i­ta­tive Data Anal­y­sis (QDA) re­search tasks, specif­i­cally for Grounded The­ory, into the LaTeX work flow.

It as­sists in the anal­y­sis of tex­tual data such as in­ter­view tran­scripts and field notes by pro­vid­ing the LaTeX user with macros which are used to markup tex­tual in­for­ma­tion — for ex­am­ple, in-depth in­ter­views.
