OpenRepGrid: 'OpenRepGrid': an R package for the analysis of repertory...

Description Note Author(s) References See Also


logo The OpenRepGrid package provides tools for the analysis of repertory grid data. The repertory grid is a method devised by George Alexander Kelly in his seminal work "The Psychology of Personal Constructs" published in 1955. The repertory grid has been used in and outside the context of Personal Construct Psychology (PCP) in a broad range of fields. For an introduction into the technique see e.g. Fransella, Bell and Bannister (2003).
