Call for papers for special issue of Health Services Research on mixed methods in health care delivery system research

Research Activities, July 2012, No. 383

AHRQ and Health Services Research are partnering to publish a special issue on mixed methods in health care delivery systems research. This type of research is defined as research that combines and systematically integrates quantitative and qualitative methods in a single study to obtain a fuller picture and deeper understanding of a phenomenon.

The aim of the special issue is to provide researchers, funders, and policymakers with a better understanding of how mixed-methods studies may contribute to health services research and to promote and facilitate the expanded use of mixed-methods designs in delivery system research. This issue will consist of reports on results from exemplary mixed-methods studies and papers that advance an understanding of principles underlying mixed-methods research or address specific methodological challenges in this type of research.

Deadline to submit is October 15. You can submit papers at http://www.hsr.org/hsr/abouthsr/call-for-papers-special-issue.jsp.
