With IMPACT, you can manage, tag, and query data collections for research.

1. Manage

Each page can have one or more editor(s). The states allow to manage the visibility of the page. By default, the page is private, which means that only the editor(s) can view it. The open state gives access to the manager(s)(s) of the space, who can also edit the page. With the public state, all the users of the space can view the page in a read-only mode (except for the manager(s).

By default, an email is sent to the manager(s)(s) when the state of the page is changed, but that can be disabled in the settings of the page.

Other states and actions can be configured by the manager(s)(s) of the space.

Example 1: a researcher works individually on the data and then make them accessible to her research team.

Example 2: a phd student gives access to a transcript to her supervisor for revision.

2. Tag

Each page can be tagged. Autocompletion allows to easily reuse tags that are already available in the space.

In the « Edit » menu of each space, a tab can be used to manage the tags. Existing tags are listed and can be renamed, or deleted, and new tags can be added. You can also retrieve tags used in another space.

Once added, tags can be used to filter the pages of a space (only the pages using the tag(s) will appear).


Example 1: a phd student working on medical interactions tags the sequences where there are laughs.

Example 2: a research team working on code-switching focuses on narratives.

Example 3: a researcher working on argumentation looks at family meals with three participants.

3. Query

With IMPACT you can search words and expressions in all or some text boxes and/or by using tags.
Example 1: a researcher focuses on interactions between two participants and where there is the French pronoun “on” in the transcript.
Example 2: a research team works on other-initiated repair and focuses on transcripts with “hum/” .
