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!

Thank you for your consideration.

Tony and John
