Abstract and Keywords
Patricia Leavy, editor of the Oxford Handbook of Qualitative Research, offers some final comments about the future of qualitative research. Leavy suggests there is a widespread move from a disciplinary to a transdisciplinary research structure in which problems of import are at the center of research practices. Within this context, qualitative researchers are well positioned to advance because of their ability to develop responsive and flexible research designs and present their work in multiple formats. Furthermore, Leavy notes how the broader move toward public scholarship is propelling both the practice of qualitative research and the teaching of qualitative methods.
