NVivo is available for campus-owned computers and for the personal computers of CSULB faculty, staff and students. The license allows for university-related use only; using NVivo for personal, commercial, or other non-academic endeavors is not allowed. Your research may require approval by the Institutional Review Board (IRB). Before starting any research please consult IRB’s website or IRB directly to determine if IRB approval is required.

CSULB faculty, staff and students may use NVivo on university and personally owned computers.  Students may also use NVivo on university owned computers (i.e. open computer labs, college computer labs, college or department owned laptops that can be checked out by students, etc. - check for availability).  NVivo may not be installed in a virtual computer environment.
