QSR - NVivo Specific Licensing Conditions

  • For teaching and/or research purposes
  • Use for commercial or revenue generating research/activities is not permitted
  • No separation of components

Working with NVivo 11 for Windows and NVivo for Mac

Users can transfer NVivo projects between NVivo 11 for Windows and NVivo for Mac. Projects will have different file formats, and before converting any projects we recommend users backup their project and understand the cross platform limitations and issues - all data may not successfully convert due to restrictions on data interchange between operating systems. Please note that to work with a project in this way, users must be using the new version of NVivo for Mac with NVivo 11 for Windows, and not a combination of new and old NVivo releases. For example, users can’t work with a project in this way using the first release of NVivo for Mac and NVivo 11 for Windows.
