Research Computing at York

Qualitative data analysis tools survey:

IT Services conducted a survey during 2016 to discover the extent of use of qualitative data analysis tools across the University. We used the data collected to improve our support for these tools by providing training, user support, and possibly more cost-effective licensing.

Reports from previous surveys:


Research Computing Support Centre

The Research Computing Support Centre offers support on advanced computing topics for research postgraduates and staff. This operates on an appointments system. For full details, please see:

Please note: The Research Computing Support Centre appointments service is currently suspended due to Covid-19. Until the service is able to resume, please direct all research computing queries or problems to the Library & IT Help Desk.

Other types of support
  • Coding Club - an informal group for people who write or develop research software. Runs a drop-in session once a month; subscribe to the mailing list (details on the website) for dates and times.
  • R User Group. Every third Friday of the month, researchers from across the University will present on applied statistics in R, based on their own research as well as introducing tools that helped them make better use of this software. For more details, contact Tom Patton:
