About the Author:

John W. Creswell is a Professor of Educational Psychology at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.  He has authored numerous articles on mixed methods research, qualitative methodology, and general research design in 26 books (including new editions). He held the Clifton Institute Endowed Professor Chair for five years at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. For the last five years, Dr. Creswell served as a co-director at the Office of Qualitative and Mixed Methods Research at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. He served as the founding Co-Editor for the SAGE journal, the Journal of Mixed Methods Research, and worked as an Adjunct Professor of Family Medicine at the University of Michigan. He also worked extensively as a consultant in the health services research area for the Veterans Administration.  Dr. Creswell was a Senior Fulbright Scholar to South Africa in 2008 and to Thailand in 2012. In 2011 he served as a co-leader of a national working group at NIH developing “best practices” for mixed methods research in the health sciences. In spring 2013, Dr. Creswell was a Visiting Professor at Harvard’s School of Public Health. In 2014, he was awarded an honorary doctorate from the University of Pretoria, South Africa.  Recently, he has been elected President of the Mixed Methods International Research Association for 2014-2015.  He has also assumed the role of the Director of the College of Education and Human Sciences Mixed Methods Training Academy at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.  His newest book, “A Concise Introduction to Mixed Methods Research” was published by SAGE Publications in April 2014.  

 



Vicki L. Plano Clark (Ph.D., University of Nebraska-Lincoln) is an assistant professor in the Quantitative and Mixed Methods Research Methodologies concentration of Educational Studies at the University of Cincinnati.  Her teaching focuses on foundations of research methodologies and mixed methods research, including a two-semester mixed methods sequence and special topics courses.  As a methodologist specializing in mixed methods research, her scholarship aims to delineate useful designs for conducting mixed methods research, examine procedural issues associated with these designs, and consider larger questions about the contexts for the adoption and use of mixed methods.  She has also co-authored several books with John W. Creswell including Designing and Conducting Mixed Methods Research (SAGE, 2007, 2011), The Mixed Methods Reader (SAGE, 2008), and Understanding Research: A Consumer’s Guide (Pearson Education, 2010, 2015).  She was the founding Managing Editor for the Journal of Mixed Methods Research and currently serves as an Associate Editor.  In 2011, she co-led the development of Best Practices for Mixed Methods in the Health Sciences for NIH's Office of Behavioral and Social Sciences Research.  She is a founding co-editor of SAGE’s Mixed Methods Research Series.

            As an applied research methodologist, Vicki also engages in research and evaluation projects on a wide array of topics such as the management of cancer pain, the identity development of STEM graduate students, the professional development of teachers of Chinese, and the effectiveness of school reform initiatives.  Before joining the University of Cincinnati, she was the director of the Office of Qualitative and Mixed Methods Research, a service and research unit that provides methodological support for proposal development and funded projects at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln.  Originally trained in physics, she spent 12 years developing innovative curricular materials for introductory physics as the Physics Laboratory Manager at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln.
