Sharlene Hesse-Biber’s Acknowledgments:
The Oxford Handbook of Multimethod and Mixed Methods Research Inquiry would not be possible without the assistance and support of many members of my academic community. First, I want to express a heartfelt thank you to all the authors of the Handbook for providing stellar, state-of-the-art Handbook chapters on a range of multimethod and mixed methods perspectives. I also want to express my gratitude to my coeditor, Dr. R. Burke Johnson, for his expertise and thoughtful feedback throughout the Handbook project.
I want to express my heartfelt gratitude to the Boston College Undergraduate Research Fellowship Committee, especially the support I have received from Dean William Petri in my research endeavors throughout my years at Boston College.
I want to especially send my appreciation and thanks to Jessica Stevens (Boston College, class of 2014) and Boston College undergraduate Hilary Flowers (Boston College, class of 2010) for their leadership in keeping this Handbook project organized and also for providing in-depth, stellar editorial assistance and outstanding general academic support. In addition, I want to express my special appreciation to Boston College undergraduates Lauren Simao, Brittany Duncan, Chiara Heintz, and Darby Sullivan for their research assistance and copyediting expertise on the Handbook chapters.
I want to express my deep respect and admiration to Dr. Julianne Cheek and Dr. Judith Preissle for their invaluable comments on the Introduction to the Handbook chapter.
The Handbook would not be possible without the vision, wisdom, and support of the Oxford Handbook editor, Abby Gross. Her editorial expertise and guidance were invaluable.
I want to express my love and deepest appreciation to my family, in particular my daughters, Julia Ariel and Sarah Alexandra, for their patience, love, and forbearance. In addition, I want to thank my extended family—my mother, Helene Stockert, as well as my sister, Georgia Geraghty, and brother, Charles Nagy.
Last, I want to thank my wonderful Portuguese water dogs, Zoli and his brother Max. They both remind me of the importance of play in our lives, and they keep me connected to the things that matter to me outside of my work life.
(p. xxiv) R. Burke Johnson’s Acknowledgments:
Of most importance, I offer my acknowledgment to all of the authors of this handbook. This is their handbook. Sincere thanks go to my co-editor Sharlene Hesse-Biber for interacting, listening, understanding, and making this truly a joint project from beginning to end. Our idea was born several years ago, and it is great to see it come to fruition. My thanks go to our Oxford editor, Abby Gross, for suggesting that Sharlene and I edit this handbook and then making it possible. I also send my thanks to Abbas Tashakkori and Charles Teddlie for showing me the way to make social science and society better and to Jennifer C. Greene for reminding us of the importance of dialogue with difference. Special thanks go to my wife, Dr. Lisa Turner, for helping me in every possible way.
