    PLAN TO READ: Alicia O'Cathain has written a new book 'A practical guide to using qualitative research with randomized controlled trials'. Divided into three parts, this book covers the process of using qualitative research with RCTs from start to finish. Section one outlines overarching issues such as the many contributions qualitative research can make to generating evidence of effectiveness, section two provides practical guidance from writing a proposal through to publishing qualitative research undertaken with RCTs, and the final section guides the reader on how to engage with relevant stakeholders. Each chapter focuses on the key steps of undertaking qualitative research in RCTs, giving examples of how to write a proposal, select research questions, integrate qualitative and quantitative components, and much more.

    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
