    International Journal of Multiple Research Approaches: Re-Launch

     

    The team of Editors are excited to announce the re-launch of the International Journal of Multiple Research Approaches (IJMRA).

     

    Initially launched by James H. Davison (former Publishing Director) and published by eContent Management Pty Ltd, the current editor team comprise the following: Anthony J. Onwuegbuzie and John H. Hitchcock (Editors-in-Chief), R. Burke Johnson (Co-Editor), Brigitte Smit (Co-Editor), Vanessa Scherman (Media Editor), and Donggil Song (Managing Editor).

     

    Published by Dialectical Publishing Inc.IJMRA, alongside the Journal of Mixed Methods Research (JMMR), is a premiere outlet for innovative and seminal work in the field of mixed methods research. However, unlike JMMRIJMRA also is a premiere outlet for innovative and seminal work in the field of multimethod research.

     

    The IJMRA first issue, which has just been launched, is an inaugural special issue entitled “Mixed Methods Manifesto.” This issue contains 2 editorials and 43 exceptional articles written by many of the leading authors in the field of mixed methods research, including but not limited to the following:

     

    Michael Quinn Patton, John Creswell, Mike Fetters, Joseph Maxwell, Burke Johnson, Donna Mertens, Kathy Collins, John Hitchcock, Tony Onwuegbuzie, Vicki Plano Clark, Nataliya Ivankova, Katrin Niglas, Brigitte Smit, José F. Molina-Azorin, Pat Bazeley, Cheryl Poth, Elizabeth Creamer, Sharlene Hesse-Biber, Bonnie Nastasi, Vanessa Scherman, Isadore Newman, Pierre Pluye, Michael Bamberger. Stephen Gorard, Manfred Max Bergmann, Judith Schoonenboom, and Mandy Archibald.

     

    The whole issue has been made open access, giving everyone free and full access to likely the largest ever special issue ever published—which is of handbook length (665 pages)—thanks to all the contributors! 

     

    The link for our inaugural special issue, entitled, Mixed Methods Manifesto, is as follows:

    Call for Manuscripts

     

    Please view the IJMRA website: <http://www.ijmra.org>. Of particular note, this website contains a comprehensive set of evidence-based writing resources that help authors to write with discipline <http://ijmra.org/index.php/evidence-based-writing-resources/>. For example, this link contains open-access articles that help authors avoid committing American Psychological Association (APA) errors in the abstract, the body of the manuscript, the reference list, and the table sections of empirical and non-empirical manuscripts submitted to a journal for review for possible publication—as well as articles on the most common grammatical errors and link words used, and on the importance of paying attention to the readability of manuscripts. These articles demonstrate that authors are statistically and practically significantly more likely to have their manuscripts rejected for publication if they do not write with discipline.

     

    We hope that you will consider submitting your future manuscripts to IJMRA. IJMRA publishes empirical, methodological, theoretical, conceptual, historical, and humanistic discussions related to multimethod research and mixed methods researchIJMRA’s scope includes innovative mixing, combining, and integrating of quantitative and/or qualitative methods, methodologies, designs, sampling, analyses, epistemologies, axiologies, and stakeholder perspectives and standpoints. Moreover, the goal of IJMRA is to disseminate a broad set of approaches that facilitate understanding of complex social, behavioral, health, educational, historical, and political concerns pertaining to the human condition and natural world. The IJMRA Editors invite manuscripts from a wide variety of international perspectives, including academics, practitioners, stakeholders, and policymakers from across the social, behavioral, health, and human sciences.

     

    A particular focus of IJMRA is to advance integration techniques in both multimethod research and mixed methods research. As such, IJMRA is not only applicable for mixed methods researchers but also is applicable for qualitative researchers and quantitative researchers.

     

    We are particularly in need of quality articles to publish in our December 2018 (i.e., Volume 10, Issue 2) and April 2019 (i.e., Volume 11, Issue 1) issues. Therefore, if you submit a quality manuscript soon, you could see your work published within several months!

     

    For submitting manuscripts for consideration for publication in the IJMRA via ScholarOne, please use the following link:

    Thank you for your consideration.

     

    Warmest regards,

     

    Tony and John

    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.

    Division D Preconference Workshop 3: Writing the Methods Chapter of the Dissertation Proposal

    Fri, April 13, 10:05am to 12:00pm, Westin New York at Times Square, Ninth Floor, Pearl Room

    Abstract

    The methods chapter of a dissertation proposal is in many ways the scientific heart of the dissertation; however writing a methods chapter can be a challenging task. You are expected not only to describe the study design, sampling, data collection, and analysis, but also to provide a thoughtful justification for your choice of research strategy and methods to best address the research problem of interest. This workshop is designed to address this challenge and to provide guidance on how to write an effective methods chapter. Presenters with extensive experience in advising on dissertations studies in qualitative, quantitative, and mixed methods research will provide helpful tips for how to structure the chapter content in a cohesive and logical manner and how to explain and support the choice of the methods. Participants will be able to develop a detailed outline of the methods chapter for the dissertation study.

    Presenters

    Jessica DeCur Gamby, North Carolina State University

    Pam Moss, University of Michigan at Ann Arbor

    Nataliya Ivankova, University of Alabama at Birmingham
