The Journal of Mixed Methods Research's (JMMR) scope includes exploring global terminology and nomenclature for mixed methods research, delineating where mixed methods research may be used most effectively, creating the paradigmatic and philosophical foundations for mixed methods research, illuminating design and procedure issues, and determining the logistics of conducting mixed methods research. JMMR uses a double-blind review process and manuscripts are generally reviewed by three scholars, at least one of which serves on the JMMR editorial board. The journal aims to have each manuscript go through its initial review within 4 months of receipt.
SUBMITTING THE MANUSCRIPT
JMMR uses an online submission and review platform. Manuscripts should be submitted electronically to http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/jmmr. Authors will be required to set up an online account on the SageTrack system powered by ScholarOne. From their account, a new submission can be initiated. Authors will be asked to provide the required information (author names and contact information, abstract, keywords, etc.) and to upload the "title page" and "main document" separately to ensure that the manuscript is ready for a blind review. The site contains links to an online user's guide (Get Help Now) for help navigating the site.
If you have any questions about the submission process please contact:
Editorial Assistant, Journal of Mixed Methods Research University of Leeds, UK
Authors who need to publish their articles via open access due to institutional or funding agency requirements are welcome to submit to JMMR. The journal participates in SAGE Choice, SAGE’s open access option for authors. For more about SAGE Choice, please click here http://www.sagepub.com/sagechoice/faq.sp
SUBMITTING MEDIA REVIEWS
Guidelines for preparing and submitting Media Reviews are available from the Editors.
JMMR publishes two types of manuscripts: empirical research and methodological/theoretical discussions.
For details about developing publishable mixed methods articles, please read this editorial:
Publishing Mixed Methods
ResearchManuscripts that report empirical mixed methods research in the social, behavioral, health, and human sciences. These manuscripts must:
Original research manuscripts that do not show integration or discuss how they add to the mixed methods literature will be returned to the author(s).
Manuscripts that discuss methodological/theoretical issues that advance knowledge about mixed methods research.
These manuscripts must:
Title Page -- Prepare a title page that includes the manuscript title, authors and affiliations, contact information for the corresponding author, and author acknowledgements, if relevant. The author names should only appear in the title page document. Manuscripts should be prepared with author names blinded throughout to facilitate the review process.
Style -- All manuscripts should conform to the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (Fifth Edition). The entire document should be double spaced and left justified, use a 12-point font, and have pages numbered consecutively. Authors should prepare an abstract and 3-5 key words. The manuscript should be prepared in MS Word (.doc) or rich text format (.rtf) and include: the text, references, endnotes, appendix(ces), tables, and figures. References, endnotes, tables, and figures must be on separate pages. Figures may also be placed into separate files. Indicate the approximate placement of each table and figure within the text with a comment such as "Insert Figure 1 about here." Please use endnotes instead of footnotes. Authors should use U.S. spellings and all references to authors within the manuscript should be blinded (such as by replacing author names in citations with XXXXXX).
Word Limits -- The full manuscript (including references, appendices, and tables) should not exceed 10,000 words in length for empirical studies and 8,000 words for methodological/theoretical discussions. In addition, authors should prepare an abstract limited to 120 words. Manuscripts that substantially exceed the stated word limitations will be returned to the author(s).
Originality of the Manuscript -- Authors submitting manuscripts to JMMR should not simultaneously submit them to another journal, nor should manuscripts have been published elsewhere in substantially similar form or with substantially similar content. Authors who have submitted manuscripts to other journals based on the same data are asked to state this in their cover letter and to submit copies of these other papers/publications for review by the Editors at the time of submitting a manuscript to JMMR. Authors in doubt about what constitutes prior publication should consult the Editors.
Obtaining Permissions -- Obtaining permission for any quoted or reprinted material that requires permission is the responsibility of the author.
Submission of a manuscript implies commitment to publish in JMMR.
The review criteria for empirical research include:
The review criteria for methodological/theoretical discussions include:
