Abstract and Keywords

Mixed methods research demands a level of integration of methods and/or analyses that is often difficult to achieve, especially within the writing phase. An integrated report might be threatened by philosophical, interdisciplinary, and methodological tensions, especially in team projects. Journal policies regarding word length or methodological focus often limit integration. Strategies for resolving these tensions and constraints are suggested, along with practical and innovative strategies for presenting results in an article or report. In particular, mixed methods writers are encouraged to integrate the presentation of results from their studies around the substantive issues generated by their purpose-related questions, having chosen points of relevance to the target audience for that publication. This means their focus will be on the message to be conveyed rather than on paradigms or methods as they plan the organization of sections, chapters, or articles.

Keywords: mixed methods, integration of methods, integrated writing, constraints, strategies
