    As a member of the mixed methods research community, as researchers from the University of Alberta (Canada), we ask for your help to address the following question: What are the essential competencies for mixed methods researchers? To build

    community consensus, we ask you to participate in a survey as part of a research project titled "Developing and Validating Competencies for Conducting Mixed Methods Research". We are interested in knowing your level of agreement with how essential each of the competencies are, and we are particularly interested in understanding what competencies are missing. Participation in the survey is anticipated to take approximately 30 minutes. HERE is the link to the survey which will be open until April 29, 2018. 


    Many thanks for considering to participate! Please contact us if you have questions:

    Announcement of the 2018 MMIRA MAXQDA Award Winners
    March 22, 2018

    It is with pleasure that we announce the recipients of the 2018 MMIRA/MAXQDA Dissertation Award for outstanding dissertation research. This bi-annual award presented at the MMIRA international conference is designed to recognize top early career scholars completing original dissertation research since the last award cycle that has the potential to make an outstanding contribution to advancing the field of mixed methods. Thanks to the generous support of MAXQDA, we are able to make three awards this year: two as awardees and a third as an honorable mention. Awardees will receive a certificate and be recognized at the awards ceremony at the MMIRA International Conference in Vienna, Austria August 22-24, 2018.


    We received 12 viable submissions in the 2018 competition that reflected a balance between US and international degree programs. Submissions were reviewed by a committee of four people who evaluated each submission on seven criteria that considered overall methodological quality, originality, and contribution the field of mixed methods research. 

     


    Top Two Awardees

    Dr. Shannon Williams, Sam Houston University, for her dissertation Select Conservative Christian Parents’ Experiences Following A Child’s LesbiGay Identity Disclosure: A Hermeneutic Phenomenological Study. Chair: Dr. Rick Bruhn.


    Dr. Emma P. Bullock, Utah State University, for her dissertation, An Explanatory Sequential Mixed Methods Study of the School Leaders’ Role in Students’ Mathematics Achievement through the Lens of Complexity Theory. Chair: Dr. Patricia S. Moyer-Packenham.


    The top two awardees receive an MMIRA sponsored conference registration; $1000 MAXQDA honorarium (presented at the conference); certificate, and a license to MAXQDA Analytics Pro (presented at the conference). Each will have an opportunity to provide a brief presentation about their research at the conference in Vienna. 


    Honorable Mention

    Dr. Alicia Gayah-Batchasingh, the University of the West Indies, for her dissertation, An Evaluation of Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE) Provision in the Rural Disadvantaged Community of Mayaro: Investigating Children’s Readiness for Primary School.

    Call for Papers

    Thematic Issue: "Qualitative Content Analysis" (September 2019)


    Guest Editors

    Markus Janssen (University of Education Weingarten, Germany), Christoph Stamann (University of Education Weingarten, Germany), Margrit Schreier (Jacobs University Bremen, Germany), Thomas Dahl (Norwegian University for Science and Technology, Norway) & Trevor Mutton (University of Oxford, UK)


    Background

    Qualitative content analysis is a highly popular method for analyzing qualitative data in many social science disciplines. It has emerged as feasible and applicable to a wide range of topics and contexts. Nevertheless we argue that there is a need for a special issue on qualitative content analysis. Why should this be the case?

    In spite of—or precisely because of—the widespread use of the method, there are many open questions concerning its application; there is a need for systematizing the different approaches to qualitative content analysis; there is great potential for further development; and there is a need to address some of the important critique of the method that has been raised. All of these necessitate further discussion from an applied, a procedural, and a methodological perspective.
