Focus and Scope

The International Journal of Qualitative Methods is a peer reviewed journal published as an open annual volume (formerly quarterly), web-based journal by the the International Institute for Qualitative Methodology at the University of Alberta, Canada, and its international affiliates. It is a multi-disciplinary, multi-lingual journal, free to the public.

Our goals are to advance the development of qualitative methods, and to disseminate methodological knowledge to the broadest possible community of academics, students, and professionals who undertake qualitative research. By keeping the journal free of charge, we hope to broaden our audience to include individuals who, for whatever reason, do not read traditional, subscription-based journals. ISSN (16094069)
