Researchers often use the Evernote application to take notes, make observations, and record other information that can be used as source data in a qualitative study. You can easily export selected notes from Evernote as documents that can be used in HyperRESEARCH.
- In Evernote, select the notes you want to bring into HyperRESEARCH:
- Choose File > Export. (On Mac OS X, choose File > Export Notes.)
- Choose either “Export as a single HTML Web Page” or “Export as multiple Web Pages”.
- Exporting as a single page puts all your selected notes into a single file. If the notes are closely related, and you want to analyze them as one file, choose this option.
- Exporting as multiple pages puts each note into its own file. If you prefer to analyze each note as a separate source, choose this option.
- In HyperRESEARCH, you can code a single source file in more than one case, so even if you export as a single file, you can use the notes in the file in several different cases.
- Click “Export” (on Windows) or “Save” (on Mac OS X) to export the file or files.
- You can open the exported files in HyperRESEARCH by choosing Sources > Open Text Source. However, the exported HTML file has some extra style information that isn’t used by HyperRESEARCH and that may not display properly.
You can obtain a better result by opening the exported HTML file in Microsoft Word, then choosing File > Save As saving it as a Word file (.docx). You can then open this file in HyperRESEARCH and code it as you would any other source file.
