Mixed Methods Research: A Guide to the Field, Volume 3 in the SAGE Mixed Methods Research Series, is an accessible, practical book on mixed methods research. It is unique among publications in the area of mixed methods as experienced authors Vicki L. Plano Clark and Nataliya V. Ivankova, focus more on designing and conducting a mixed methods study and all of the details involved in that process. Highlighted are the major topics, . perspectives and on-going debates in the field, while also addressing how these topics relate to and shape the practice of mixed methods research. The book is divided into four parts that utilizes the authors' socio-ecological conceptual framework for the field of mixed methods research. Each chapter begins with learning objectives and key concepts and then comes full circle at the end of each chapter in revisiting these objectives and concepts.
Vicki L. Plano Clark (Ph.D., University of Nebraska-Lincoln) is an assistant professor in the Quantitative and Mixed Methods Research Methodologies concentration of Educational Studies at the University of Cincinnati. Her teaching focuses on foundations of research methodologies and mixed methods research, including a two-semester mixed methods sequence and special topics courses. As a methodologist specializing in mixed methods research, her scholarship aims to delineate useful designs for conducting mixed methods research, examine procedural issues associated with these designs, and consider larger questions about the contexts for the adoption and use of mixed methods. She has also co-authored several books with John W. Creswell including Designing and Conducting Mixed Methods Research (SAGE, 2007, 2011), The Mixed Methods Reader (SAGE, 2008), and Understanding Research: A Consumer’s Guide (Pearson Education, 2010, 2015). She was the founding Managing Editor for the Journal of Mixed Methods Research and currently serves as an Associate Editor. In 2011, she co-led the development of Best Practices for Mixed Methods in the Health Sciences for NIH's Office of Behavioral and Social Sciences Research. She is a founding co-editor of SAGE’s Mixed Methods Research Series.
As an applied research methodologist, Vicki also engages in research and evaluation projects on a wide array of topics such as the management of cancer pain, the identity development of STEM graduate students, the professional development of teachers of Chinese, and the effectiveness of school reform initiatives. Before joining the University of Cincinnati, she was the director of the Office of Qualitative and Mixed Methods Research, a service and research unit that provides methodological support for proposal development and funded projects at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln. Originally trained in physics, she spent 12 years developing innovative curricular materials for introductory physics as the Physics Laboratory Manager at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln.
Nataliya V. Ivankova (Ph.D., University of Nebraska-Lincoln; M.P.H., University of Alabama at Birmingham) holds a dual appointment as Associate Professor in the Department of Health Services Administration (School of Health Professions) and the Department of Acute, Chronic and Continuing Care (School of Nursing) at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. She teaches graduate research methods courses, including a two-semester sequence in mixed methods research, mixed methods applications in community-based action research, and advanced courses in qualitative research design. Her expertise is in qualitative inquiry and mixed methods research and their applications across disciplines. Her long-standing interest is in the use of mixed methods in community-based participatory action research, implementation science and translational research, which resulted in the book Mixed Methods Applications in Action Research: From Methods to Community Action (2015, Sage Publications).
In addition to teaching, Nataliya mentors doctoral students in their dissertation research, and post-doctoral fellows and junior faculty in their qualitative and mixed methods funded research projects. She serves as consultant, co-investigator, and methodologist on externally and internally funded projects in education, health care, nursing, and health behavior. She is a founding Co-editor of SAGE’s Mixed Methods Research Series and serves as Associate Editor for the Journal of Mixed Methods Research and Qualitative Research Editor for the American Journal of Health Behavior. For several years, she chaired Special Interest Group Mixed Methods Research within American Educational Research Association. Currently she is actively involved with Mixed Methods International Research Association as Chair of Communication & Marketing Committee. Prior to coming to UAB, Nataliya was Research Projects Coordinator in the Office of Qualitative and Mixed Methods Research at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln. During the first eighteen years of her professional career she served as a member of the faculty and also as Dean for Admissions at the Izmail State University in Ukraine.
