NSU Home  The Qualitative Report
An online bi-monthly journal dedicated to qualitative research since 1990

    Practicing Qualitative Research

Starting with Volume 3, we added a new feature to The Qualitative Report called "Practicing Qualitative Research." This section of the journal includes shorter pieces in which the author(s) present exercises, activities, and techniques for qualitative researchers to try. The goal of this section is to provide practitioners and teachers of qualitative research with an array of practical, hands-on activities through which they or their students can hone their skills and improve their practice of and thinking about qualitative research.

Contributors to "Practicing Qualitative Research" can submit their work to The Qualitative Report by sending their paper as an email attachment to
