Merged Methods

A Rationale for Full Integration

Giampietro Gobo,

Merged Methods: A Rationale for Full Integration
 

About the eBook

A new turn in mixed methods research is here: merged methods. This provocative book offers a novel analysis of current mixed methods research, complicating traditional approaches and challenging existing techniques.

Moving beyond the binary quantitative-qualitative distinction, the book presents methodologically grounded ways to merge methods in social research and integrate interpretive and structural approaches in one instrument or procedure. 

The book: 

  • Considers the importance of merging both epistemologies and methodologies.
  • Showcases eight merged methods research approaches, from the Delphi method to multimodal content analysis.
  • Explores the opportunities for merging methods using computational techniques, such as text mining.

This innovative book is a must-read for any postgraduate student or researcher across the social sciences wanting to develop their understanding of mixed methods research.
