Abstract and Keywords

The metaphorical concept of border work provides an introductory starting point for this Handbook’s overall vision. To engage in multimethod and mixed methods research (MMMR) requires working at the borders of disciplines and navigating across a turbulent MMMR landscape characterized by deep epistemic, theoretical, and methods divides. This chapter introduces the research challenges multimethod and mixed methods researchers confront in doing border work. Multimethod and mixed methods researchers are given a wealth of research strategies that provide “ways forward” for incorporating ethics, diversity, social justice, and social policy into the MMMR praxis. This chapter also tackles the range of new technologies, theoretical perspectives, and MMMR designs for bridging qualitative and quantitative divides. The chapter ends with the collective research wisdom gathered from our Handbook authors who shared their research insights and the items they would place in their MMMR backpack for their journey.

Keywords: multimethods, mixed methods, border work, new technologies, diversity, ethics, social justice, social policy
