9781412927918: Designing and Conducting Mixed Methods Research

"The authors provided state-of-the-art information about mixed methods approaches to research. The book significantly expands Creswell's previous editions of mixed methods approaches to research by including four complete current studies that exemplify distinctive research using mixed methods...What becomes apparent throughout the book is the authors' interest in providing researchers with sufficient information about how to match their research problem to an appropriate design...I also highly recommend this book to anyone seeking to further their understanding of mixed methods research and acquire an in-depth analysis of the methodology."

Vicki L. Plano Clark, Ph.D., is a research assistant professor in the Department of Educational Psychology, co-director of the Office of Qualitative and Mixed Methods Research, and managing editor of the new Journal of Mixed Methods Research (Sage Publications) at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL).  Her specialization includes mixed methods research designs and qualitative research.  She is interested in the procedural issues that arise when implementing different designs and how mixed methods research is applied in different disciplines.  She has co-authored numerous methodological discussions as well as empirical studies using qualitative and mixed methods approaches in science education, family research, and family medicine.  In addition, she served as the Laboratory Manager in the UNL Department of Physics and Astronomy (1993-2005), working with the Research in Physics Education Group, and was a principal investigator on three National Science Foundation projects.  

Review:

"This textbook, designed for graduate students and researchers, presents a clear and comprehensive guidebook for designing and conducting mixed methods research. One of the greatest strengths of this book for students and researchers is the inclusion of four complete published research studies in the appendixes. This is an excellent textbook for anyone interested in understanding mixed methods research. Although the target audience is graduate students, I believe that the text would be accessible and interesting to advanced undergraduates." (Karl N. Kelley Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books )
