The following study outlines a new framework for conducting a literature review using ATLAS.ti (the qualitative data analysis software). Whereas traditional, manual literature reviews can be challenging to maintain organized and coherent, the aim of this framework is to introduce techniques for a rigorous literature review through the use of ATLAS.ti as a project management tool. Having reviewed the main literature review guides utilized today in top universities and research institutions, the authors suggest a new framework that synthesizes these best practices through a practical approach that is applied to ATLAS.ti. Any research project necessitates a literature review, which is why this framework first introduces different methodologies for literature reviews, followed by a series of techniques which show the individual how to take advantage of ATLAS.ti in conducting a systematic review from which reports can be easily generated. The authors subsequently designed an online three-day course which applies this framework in teaching participants best practices for conducting literature reviews with ATLAS.ti. Based on the development and teaching of this framework, the authors present suggestions for best practices so that any interested researcher may learn how to take advantage of this qualitative data analysis software in conducting their own robust literature reviews.
