For details about developing publishable manuscripts in mixed methods, please read this editorial:


Mixed methods research is defined as research in which the investigator collects and analyzes data, integrates the findings, and draws inferences using both qualitative and quantitative approaches or methods in a single study or program of inquiry.

The Journal of Mixed Methods Research (JMMR) is an innovative, quarterly, international publication that focuses on empirical, methodological, and theoretical articles about mixed methods research across the social, behavioral, health, and human sciences. Supported by the premier researchers and practitioners in mixed methods research, including such luminaries as John Creswell, Abbas Tashakkori, Alan Bryman, Michael Fetters, Donna Mertens, David Morgan, Michael Patton, and Charles Teddlie (to name a few), each issue explores:

  • Original mixed methods research that fits the definition of mixed methods research; explicitly integrates the quantitative and qualitative aspects of the study; adds to the literature on mixed methods research; and makes a contribution to a substantive area in the scholar’s field of inquiry; and
  • Methodological/theoretical topics that advance knowledge about mixed methods research, such as:
    • Type of research/evaluation questions
    • Types of designs
    • Sampling and/or measurement procedures
    • Approaches to data analysis
    • Validity
    • Software applications
    • Paradigm stance
    • Writing structures
    • The value and use of mixed methods research

Not only does JMMR offer original mixed methods research and methodological/theoretical discussions, it also includes insightful reflections by the distinguished editors on important issues in mixed methods research and extensive book and software reviews with practical applications.

The Journal of Mixed Methods Research's scope includes

  • Explore terminology and nomenclature used in mixed methods research
  • Providing a forum for discussion of parameters effecting mixed methods research
  • Creating the paradigmatic and philosophical foundations for mixed methods research
  • Illuminating design and procedure issues
  • Determining the logistics of conducting mixed methods research

The editorial board consists of distinguished international researchers in the social, behavioral, health, and human sciences with expertise in quantitative, qualitative, and mixed methods research. Editorial board members' names and affiliations are found under the Editorial Board link.

The Journal of Mixed Methods Research is a premiere outlet for ground-breaking and seminal work in the field of mixed methods research, as well as a primary forum for the growing community of international and multidisciplinary scholars of mixed methods research.
