Abstract and Keywords

In this final chapter, Burke Johnson (a) thanks the authors who constitute this handbook, (b) addresses the question of “What is mixed methods research today?,” (c) provides a word cloud map of handbook concepts, (d) provides a quote/idea from each chapter showing new knowledge, (e) lists some personal insights from studying the chapters, and (f) provides a vision of “Where do we go now?” In this last section, Burke summarizes John Rawls’ theory of justice and applies selected parts, analogously, to help envision a realistic utopia for social/behavioral science. The chapter ends with 18 working characteristics that will help us produce an inclusive and better and more defensible social/behavioral science that capitalizes on all of our strengths.

Keywords: mixed methods, multimethod, inclusive science, dialectical, pluralism, realistic utopia
