Abstract [en]

Computer Aided Qualitative Data Analysis Software (CAQDAS) is becoming an essential tool for a number of social scientists. Particularly, CAQDAS allow for a more rapid and rigorous qualitative data analysis. Over the past few decades, a variety of software that falls under the CAQDAS umbrella has emerged in the market. In this context, this paper focuses on one of the software - Atlas-ti 5.0- to describe its use as a tool for enhancing rigour in qualitative social research. The paper describes why and how Atlas-ti 5.0 has been used for data analysis in an exemplar qualitative social research on the ecology of the Mauritian early adolescents’ Internet-mediated dating/romance. It also considers some critics related to the essentials of rigour in qualitative social research. Finally, it outlines the use of Atlas-ti 5.0 for bringing rigour in the exemplar research.
