One of the great promises of working with RQDA is conceiving of it as computer assisted literature review software. This requires balancing the right amount of coding with text that can be used as warrants and backing in arguments. In theory it is a great idea--using computer assisted qualitative data analysis software (CAQDAS) for literature reviews, but how do you get the article PDFs into R and RQDA in a human readable format? By this I mean that many empirical articles are written in two column formats, and text extraction with standard tools produces text on the diagonal. Extracting PDF texts under this circumstance can be daunting when using some R packages such as 'pdftools', either with or without the assistance of the 'tesseract' package. If you are working on a windows based computer, you can install three packages and Java to do the trick. First gather the literature articles that you would like to mark up in RQDA. Put them into a folder, and away you go.
