Simply Powerful Tools for Qualitative Research

Download HyperRESEARCH

Download HyperRESEARCH™

If you want to try out HyperRESEARCH for free: Download the Free Limited Edition from the links below. The Free Edition is suitable for teaching the basics of qualitative research, without requiring students to purchase the full package. You can also use the Free Edition to explore HyperRESEARCH's capabilities. The Free Edition is fully functional, with the following limits:

  • The Code Book is limited to 75 codes.
  • A study is limited to 7 cases.
  • Each case can have no more than 50 code references.

To continue your work without these limitations, purchase a license using the Buy Now link under the Sales menu. Once you enter your license key, you can continue working with the same files; the only thing that changes is that the number of codes, cases, and code references is unlimited with a licensed copy.

If you have just purchased HyperRESEARCH and want to download it: First download the Free Limited Edition appropriate to your operating system and install it. When you start up the Free Edition, it asks whether you want to enter a license key or continue in free mode. The license key was emailed to you when you purchased HyperRESEARCH. Once you enter your license key, the program removes all the limitations and transforms itself into the full edition.

If you are an existing customer and want to reinstall HyperRESEARCH: Check your license key first to find out whether you need to upgrade. License keys for versions prior to 3.0 do not work with the current version of HyperRESEARCH.

  • If your key has UPPERCASE characters (e.g. RXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX), your license key is compatible with the current version of HyperRESEARCH.
  • If your key has lowercase characters (e.g. xxxx-xxxxxxx), you have the older version 2.x and will need to purchase a new license key.

If you are upgrading HyperRESEARCH from a previous version: Purchase a license key at our special upgrade price. (Use the Buy Now link under the Sales menu, and add a number of HyperRESEARCH Upgrades equal to the number of license keys you have to upgrade to your cart.)  You will receive an email containing a new HyperRESEARCH 3.7.x license key for each upgrade purchased. Next, download the free edition and install it. When the program asks for a license key, enter your new key to fully enable HyperRESEARCH.

HyperRESEARCH Tutorial Downloads

The HyperRESEARCH package includes seven tutorials to help you get the most out of the program. (The tutorials are located in the "Documentation" folder within the "HyperRESEARCH" folder created when you install HyperRESEARCH.) Everything needed to complete all of the tutorials is included in the package, with the exception of these supplemental media files used in Tutorial 5, "Working with Graphic, Video, and Audio Source Materials." We provide these multimedia files separately in order to keep the main package as conveniently small as possible.

File Name Description

Sample audio, video, and image files for use with Tutorial Five.

Do You Know...

... that in HyperRESEARCH you can use keyboard shortcuts to code audio and video? Just play your source file while listening and/or watching. When you come to the starting point of a segment you want to code, press Control-[ (if you use Windows) or Command-[ (if you use Mac OS X). Continue playing the segment, and when you reach the end of the part you want to code, press Control-] or Command-]. Your chosen segment is now selected, ready to have a code applied!

(This tip can be particularly helpful when you have a long source file and it's difficult to place the play head precisely enough at the spot you want to code. Using the keyboard shortcuts lets you code interactively, without fiddling with the controls on the screen.)
