MAXQDA 2020 –开启研究创新的新纪元

对于即将开始2020年,我们问了自己一个简单的问题:是什么使全世界的研究人员都选择MAXQDA作为他们的第一研究软件,以及我们如何才能使这些出色的数据分析工具变得更好?经过30多年的创新,您将在MAXQDA 2020中找到我们对这个问题的答案。它以现有优势为基础,还提供了其他任何地方都无法找到的革命性新功能。我们来看一下!

MAXQDA 2020 – 功能亮点



We know how important memos are to keeping track of ideas, thoughts and insights regarding your research. Memos can play a vital role in the analytical process and can often be the starting point for writing up report chapters. MAXQDA 2020 offers multiple new tools to work with memos more easily & efficiently.

  • New memo sidebar. Display and read your memos alongside your data by displaying them directly next to your source material in the sidebar.
  • New memo tab in the main menu. Access existing memos, write new memos or search for memos – all in one place!
  • New Memo Editor. The newly designed Memo Editor expands your writing space – and you can now add tables to your memo texts.
  • Memo links. Link parts of a memo to any section in the data to quickly jump back and forth – or link a memo to any number of codes and/or coded segments.



These new Memo Manager features turns your memos into a complete project knowledge base.

  • Filter and search. Filter and sort memos by type, date, author, or symbol. Search within all or only selected memos and quickly find memos attached to any element of your research.
  • Work. Open several memos in tabs, combine a group of memos in a set, and use the new workspace to organize, compare and write up your notes.

MAXMaps 3.0


通过MAXQDA 2020,我们在开发业内最先进的面向研究的可视化工具的道路上继续取得了新的突破。

With MAXQDA 2020, we have continued to make new breakthroughs on the road to developing the most sophisticated research-oriented visualization tools in the industry. MAXMaps now comes with six new models, new options for existing models, and a user-friendly interactive concept model builder.

  • New interactive model builder. Interactively test any of the existing options for a model before creating a new map and save time creating the perfect map to illustrate your data.
  • Six new models. The new models can visualize your project’s code by document distribution, related & overlapping codes, or put a spotlight on summaries and paraphrases.
  • Map Organizer. The redesigned Map Organizer window now lets you add comments to a map, reorganize maps more efficiently and group maps into folders.
  • New objects & formatting options. More flexibility to work with lines and arrows, better descriptions to illustrate relationships between elements, and a general design update for all formatting options that looks and works in a similar way to widely used office software packages.


经过重新设计,以适合您查看和使用编码段的方式。 新的显示选项将更多信息添加到数据显示

  • Sidebar for comments. Display comments for a coded segment in a new sidebar next to your retrieved segments.
  • Include variables. Display your favorite document variables and variable values.
  • Coding stripes. Coding stripes are displayed next to retrieved segments to make it easier to find segments by code color.
  • Subheadings. Coded segments are separated by subheadings: document names (when sorted by documents), code names (when sorted by codes), and weight scores (when sorted by weight).
  • Hide source information. Hide coded segment source information to fully concentrate on the segments themselves.



You can already import bibliographical metadata from Endnote, Mendeley, and Zotero into MAXQDA. In MAXQDA 2020, these import options additionally include the respective texts or PDF articles.

What’s more, MAXQDA also automatically recognizes duplicates, and attachments can be automatically coded during import with the keywords assigned to them.



New automatic transcription services for audio and video files are popping up every day – they are so much faster than manual transcription, and their automatic speech recognition is getting better and better. MAXQDA 2020 allows you to work with the automatic transcription service of your choice – and import transcripts and timestamps from commonly used online and offline applications.

Transcript sources include AmberScript, TEMI, Trint, f4, f5transkript, Transana, Rev.com, and more.


使用新的拖放合并和一键式子代码功能,可以节省构建和优化代码的时间。 通过新的频率显示设置,您可以对数据中的代码分布获得新的见解。

  • One-click subcode. Building up a code system has never been easier. Just hover over a code to see the one-click subcode feature, which you can use to create a new code on the spot.
  • Drag & drop merge. Drag one code onto another code and simply drop it onto the new Merge area to combine two codes into one.
  • Code frequency settings. Use this feature to adjust the frequency numbers displayed in the Code System. Choose to only count codes in selected documents or to count in how many documents, document groups, or document sets a code was applied in.



Quote and review interview transcripts and literature, now with the new line numbering text display. But don’t worry – paragraph numbers haven’t disappeared, and you can switch back to the original paragraph numbering system with one click.

And you can still customize your line numbering: set the maximum number of characters per line the way that works best for you.



The new Open Coding Mode is perfect for researchers using the grounded theory approach. When activated, you can simply select a segment in a text, PDF or image and the dialog box for creating new codes will appear automatically.

In addition to adding a Code memo to the segment, the Open Coding Mode code windows also lets you attach a comment to the segment quickly and easily.


您是否用自己的话语总结了大量编码段? 现在,跨案例查看和比较这些压缩信息变得更加容易。

The new interactive Summary Explorer lets you compare all of the summaries associated with a code within a given document, document group, or document set – and quickly jump back to the original source.

The table of results doesn’t list all of the coded segments on a topic for each group, which can sometimes be difficult to keep track of; instead, it lists the condensed information on this topic in the form of summaries – written by you or your team of researchers.


获取图片:以可视方式对案例进行聚类以分析差异和相似性。 两种情况越相似,它们在地图上的距离就越近。

Display selected documents as if they were on a map to visualize the differences and similarities between documents: the greater the similarity between two documents – in terms of (selected) code assignments and (optionally) demographic data – the closer they are displayed to each other.

The map can then be exported as an image or saved as a map in MAXMaps. This is an ideal tool for clustering cases and for in-depth explorations of identified groups.


布置合理的工作区,可按案例或组查看所有释义。 现在您还可以解释图像片段。

  • Paraphrase Matrix. Each column contains the paraphrases for a document, document group, or document set.
  • Paraphrase images. Paraphrase different segments of an image.  
  • Printing paraphrases. Print a document (or think about our planet’s future and save it to PDF) with the complete paraphrases visible in the page margin.  



In recent years, the topic of research data archiving has attracted increasing attention. The EU Commission on Competition adopted a resolution in 2016, requiring all publicly funded scientific publications in the EU to be freely accessible by 2020. This decision explicitly referred to the research data on which the publications are based.

In MAXQDA 2020, you can easily archive your data with a new single-click function. A clear and simple to understand folder and file structure is then generated that contains all your collected data – optionally also as a compressed ZIP file.

In addition to the original data sources, archives can also include statistical data, media data, memos, and your code system.
