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 MAXQDY free of charge.

How can I use MAXQDA as a student?

You have two possibilities:

1. Usage in poolroom

MAXDQA Analytics Pro is available for use on the computers in the IT Services Lehrpool in the KGII, 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 10 network licenses available for use on personal computers. These are lended out to students
writing their thesis (bachelor, master, or doctoral) for a period of 3 months.
In order to enter you name on the waiting list, please send an email to lizenzen@rz.uni-freiburg.de.

When can I expect to receive the license?
Due to the limited number of network licenses available and an increasing demand thereof, waiting times can last up to 8 weeks.
For this reason we recommend entering your name on the list and/or enquiring about the waiting time as early as possible, which is all non-binding.
You may also register for future usage of the license and state the time period during which you will need the software. We will then try to consider that information.
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 3 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.
