MAXQDA - Qualitative and quantitative data and text analaysis

University students can borrow licenses for MaxQDA Plus (acquired centrally by the IT Services) or use MAXQDA Analytics Pro on campus, both free of charge. Employees and researchers may seek consultation regarding the acquisition thereof.

MAXQDA for students

University of Freiburg students can use MAXQD free of charge.

How can I use MAXQDA as a student?

You have two possibilities:

1. Usage in poolroom

NEW 01.10.2019: MAXQDA is available since 01.10.2019 in rooms 002 and 007 of Werthmannstraße 4. 
20.02.2020: Due to the closure of the pool rooms in Werthmannstraße 4 due to structural defects, MAXQDA is temporarily available in pool room 04-015 in KG II on the 4th floor. 

 

15.05.2020: Due to the closure of all university buildings because of the Corona crisis, MAXQDA licenses are not available in the pool rooms. However, those who urgently want to use MAXQDA can borrow a network license if necessary. Thanks to the generous financing of the Students' Committee, 20 additional licenses are available for the loan. 

 

MAXDQA Analytics Pro is available for use on the computers in the IT Services Lehrpool in the KG II, on the 4th floor (room 04015). Since there are currently no courses
taking place there, students may use the program in this poolroom from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. on weekdays and from 9 a.m. to 12.30 p.m. on Saturdays. The course image under which MAXQDA is licensed is called "MAXQDA-Windows 10".

When using the course image, please remember to save your project´s data on your personal network drive or on an external drive. Data saved "locally" on the computer (e.g. on the desktop) will be deleted when the computer is shut down.

2. Network license rental

Additionally, there are 30* network licenses available (*20 of which were kindly financed by the student committee) for use on personal computers. These are lent to students for a period of 3 months for the processing of their theses (bachelor, master, or doctoral).
To be added to the lending list, send an e-mail to lizenzen@rz.uni-freiburg.de.

When can I expect to receive the license?
Due to the additional network licenses financed by the student Committee, the waiting time is considerably reduced. Currently, there are still some licenses available. However, it is still advisable to register on the waiting list early or to ask about the waiting time. This is done without further obligation. For example, you can also indicate the period of time in which you need the software for future use. We will then try to take this information into account. 
 
Can I extend the rental period of 3 months?
Basically, no. However, if you are not able to meet the deadline, contact lizenzen@rz.uni-freiburg.de. If you fail to do so, your computer will be deleted from the list of authorized computers without warning.
You do, in principle, have the possibility to put your name on the waiting list a second time. However, as is the case for the first time, some waiting time must be expected.

MAXQDA for researchers and employees

Over the last 4 years, there has been an increasing number of enquiries regarding the software MAXQDA. Since 2016, the University IT Services has been trying to centralize the aqcuisition of the MAXQDA licenses in order to minimize outlay, administration and costs.

Should you be interested in the usage or purchase of MAXQDA licenses, please send us a message through lizenzen@rz.uni-freiburg.de. We will gladly inform you about the possibilities for the acquisition and the usage of the program.
