About this Manual
This manual describes the functions and concepts of ATLAS.ti. Methodological 
approaches to qualitative data analysis or text interpretation will not be discussed 
in these pages.
It is not required that you read the manual sequentially from first page to last. Feel 
free to skip sections that describe concepts you are already familiar with, jump 
directly to sections that describe functions you are interested in, or simply use it as 
a reference guide to look up information on certain key concepts. 
For users with no prior knowledge of ATLAS.ti, we do, however, recommend that 
you especially read through the first part of this manual in order to become 
familiar with the concepts used by ATLAS.ti and to gain an overview of the 
available functions. These are the chapters: “The VISE Principle” on page 21, 
“Main Concepts and Features” on page 25and “Main Workspace: The HU
Editor” on page 43.
Further, to set up a project, we recommended that you read about the “Main
Steps in Working with ATLAS.ti” on page 38 and “Preparing Primary
Documents” on page 71. For all basic-level work like creating quotations, coding, 
and writing memos, consult the chapters under the main heading: “The Data
Level - Basic Functions” on page 181ff. Advanced functions are described under: 
“Data Analysis and Theory-Building Tools“ on page 262ff.
The sequence of the chapters follows the steps that are necessary to start and 
work on an ATLAS.ti project: 
First, the main concepts that ATLAS.ti utilizes are explained; then an overview of 
all available tools is provided. These introductory and more theoretically-oriented 
parts are followed by more practically-oriented chapters providing step-by-step 
instructions. You will learn how to manage your data, how to set up and start a 
project, and how to prepare and edit documents. 
After a project is set up, the basic functions like coding, text search, auto-coding, 
writing memos, etc. become relevant. Conceptual-level functions like the Network 
Editor, the Query Tool and Co-occurence Explorer build on the data-level work (at 
least in most cases) and are therefore described last. 
The chapter “Resources” on page 429 offers some useful advice on how to get 
support and where to find further information on the software.

• Those who have no prior knowledge of ATLAS.ti
• Those who have worked with the previous version, ATLAS.ti 5. 
There is no need for users with prior knowledge to read through the entire 
manual. However, we highly recommend that they still read the following 
sections/chapters: 
• “Preparing Primary Documents “, page 71ff, “Working with Internal
Documents (for smaller projects containing only text files) “ on page 40; 
Data Transcription“ on page 90; “Working with Associated Documents“ on 
page 97.
• “Data Management in ATLAS.ti“, page 105ff.
• “Setting Up a New Project“, page 112ff.
• “Preparing Google Earth Documents“, page 76ff and “Importing Survey
Data “, on page 99 ff (in case this is of interest to you)
• “Suggestions for structuring the list of codes“, page 219ff
• “Co-occurrence Tools“, page 299ff.
• When working in teams, look at the following section: “Team Project
Management“ on  page 149ff.
You should not expect introductory or advanced information on 
methodological aspects of qualitative research other than cursory 
statements from this manual. 
Some general familiarity with concepts and procedures relating to the Windows 
operating system (e.g., windows, mouse) and computing in general (e.g. files, 
folders) is assumed.
