ATLAS.ti, by Scientific Software Development, is a long-time popular code-and-retrieve software packages for Qualitative research. It was originally designed for grounded theory analysis, but now is flexible enough to handle many purposes. Atlas.ti is now at version 22 (as in 2022), but the prior version was 9 (following 7 and 8)--there is no Atlas.ti 10-21. Updates over the past 5 years have been substantial and have drastically increased usability and competativeness with other options. The addition of a cloud-based Web version, which is free with the purchase of a desktop license, makes it very attractive. Compared with other qualitative software, Atlas.ti tends to have more flexibility with viewing and searching.
