HyperRESEARCH is a Simply Powerful Tool for Qualitative Analysis. The tool is easy to use, cross-platform, flexible, powerful, and cost-effective. The intuitive interface and well-written documentation get users up and running with their data quickly and easily.
Research assistants can be easily taught how to code and retrieve data without having to use any of the more powerful features. Its cross-platform capabilities allow users to use it anywhere, on any computer. They also make it easy for computer-diverse groups to work together on the same study.
The program’s license lets professionals to use the program on all their computers (work, desktop, and laptop) without paying extra. It runs natively on Macintosh and Windows machines. The HyperRESEARCH application is so small that a user can run it from a USB thumb drive— put both Mac and Win versions on there and get ultra portability!
The software’s case-based architecture gives a user versatility in coding source files to more than one case. They can get a jumpstart in coding by autocoding multiple sources to multiple cases, applying specified codes to multiple keywords or phrases in a single pass. They can select any chunk of text (from a single character to an entire file) and apply any number of code names to the chunk.
They can also recall their codes by name, or select them based on proximity to other codes. Its powerful and advanced features give users complete access to and control over your data. Advanced media support lets a consumer to analyze subtle interactions by coding directly to audio and video files, their transcripts, or both.
The Code Map lets users build a visual representation of codes and their relationships (networks) and acts as a powerful code selection tool. They generate code frequencies and export them for further analysis with statistical software. The software’s unique Theory Builder helps users to build theories and test them against the codes they've applied to their data.

HyperRESEARCH is a cross-platform software application for researchers doing qualitative analysis. It runs natively on Macintosh and Windows devices. Hyper research cross-platform functionality makes it easy for diverse team members to work together on the same study from anywhere, and on any computer.
HyperRESEARCH provides powerful, advanced features that give you complete access to and control over your data. It also gives you flexibility in terms of how you approach your data. Its case-based architecture gives you versatility to autocode multiple sources to multiple cases, applying specified codes to multiple keywords or phrases through a single command. You can also recall your codes by name or select them based on proximity to other codes. HyperRESEARCH also allows you create memos such as code descriptions and annotations to serve as notes for you and other researchers or for any other purpose. HyperRESEARCH’s code map lets you build a visual representation of codes and their relationships, as well as act as a powerful code selection tool. As an extension, you can generate code frequencies and export them for further analysis with statistical software. The study packager tool makes it easier to store, back up, and exchange entire studies. It automatically creates a single compressed file out of a study file and its sources. The Mixed methods importer tool takes your survey data from a spreadsheet and automatically builds a complete study. It allows you to take a quantitative study such as a survey, and incorporate, and analyze qualitative data in a mixed methods study.
HyperRESEARCH for ethnographic research
HyperResearch is the only major QDA that does not restrict installation to only one or two computers. A HyperResearch license allows the software to be installed on any of the computers you work at, with the only restriction that only one computer be used at a time. You can even install HyperResearch onto a USB removable drive and run it anywhere. This is extremely convenient for users who work on research projects at work, at home, or on a Windows tablet computer.
The other major players offer student licenses, but they are very restrictive, and expire when the user can no longer prove she/he is still a student. Thus, if you create a large research project during your MA or PhD, and wish to revisit 2 years after graduating, your student copy of the software will not work. You’ll have to pay full retail price to gain access to your own data and analysis. HyperResearch’s student licence does not expire.
HyperRESEARCH is easy to install on Windows, Mac. I found it also installs perfectly in WINE or Crossover in Linux and appears to run without any problem. This is great news for Linux users looking for QDA software. However, because HyperRESEARCH is a powerful analytical tool, learning how to use it requires a considerable investment of time. The interface is clean and quite easy to understand after viewing several tutorial videos and reading the manual.
HyperRESEARCH has similar tools to other QDA software. Users can select data in various formats (text, image, audio, video, or PDF), and apply codes to the material. Manual Coding: Applied codes can be seen in the margin of workspace which facilitates finding information quickly understanding a document's flow. By analyzing the coded text, audio, and video materials, Interactions or trends appearing amongst the codes can be discovered. Automated Coding: Sometimes its a good idea to undertake automated coding of a document as this may help reveal trends or provide a good starting point to develop a code base. Codes can include descriptions about the code and include related notes as well.
Users can write memos to add additional information about codes that have been added. Notes can be reminders, thoughts about the work, or messages to colleagues who are working on the same study. HyperResearch includes various analysis tools. Commonly used tools include a word-cloud analysis tool that allows the researcher to see texual data as a word cloud to help identify recurring themes. Frequency tool can summarize statistical data about the use of codes and show how frequently they have been used. Theory-builder tool can help researchers build a model to test a hypothesis and see if it is supported through the coded data.
HyperResearch appears to be very efficiently coded because it runs smoothly in Windows, on a Linux system in WINE or in Crossover. It also runs very well in a Windows 10 virtual machine running on a Linux host. I have not tested it on a Mac computer.
Customer support is outstanding. I've submitted many technical support requests and always receive, prompt and complete answers. Impressive.
Overall, Hyperresearch is an outstanding tool for researchers owing to its advanced feature set, ability to run on Windows, Mac, and Linux (tested on Wine, Crossover and in a virtual machine), and permissive licensing system that allows users to install it on several computers. Hyperresearch is idea for students owing to its low cost, and the fact its student license does not expire, unlike competitive products.
HyperRESEARCH 4.0 is a qualitative data analysis application (QDA) for coding and analysis of text, video and audio data.
While several vendors offer QDA software, HyperRESEARCH stands out for several key reasons:
1) It is easy to use. You can start coding your data within a comparatively short time.
2) Price-wise, it is inexpensive when compared to applications by the 'big' QDA vendors.
3). HyperRESEARCH comes with an outstanding non-restrictive license that allows installation on several machines and as a portable app. This way, you can use it on a desktop, on a notebook in the field, and on a tablet while on the subway. This is very important for graduate students who want to be able to edit their qualitative data projects even long after they have graduated. With the other big vendors, a student license will expire and after you graduate, you'll be forced to buy a very costly full version of the software if you want to continue to work with your own data. In contrast, HyperRESEARCH’s student license does not expire. This is outstanding!
4). Rapid support. My colleagues have noted the company responds very quickly.
HyperRESEARCH is an outstanding QDA for researchers: 1) It is cross-platform (Windows, Mac, and Linux); 2) has a very good licensing agreement that enables users to install it on several computers and the license does not expire; 3) it is priced lower than competitors and offers the same features.
