Summary/Abstract: For a long time, a growing interest in tools which could support an analytical process has been noticed among researchers, scientists, as well as practitioners who run a qualitative data collection. However, CAQDAS (computer-assisted qualitative data analysis) gained popularity only in several domestic studies. This is the reason reason why we decided to work within a bigger group of researchers, what resulted in this very volume devoted to the above-mentioned subject. It embraces essays of people who participated in a focus group organized during the 15th Congress of the Polish Sociological Association in Szczecin, as well as articles of other researchers who are experienced in applying modern tools which support research process. This collection of articles may become one of the first such publications which present the possibilities and manners of using various types of CAQDAS programs in research based on qualitative methods.
