Windsong, Elena Ariel – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2018
As intersectionality gains more prominence, scholars still face difficulties of incorporating principles of intersectionality into empirical research. Key concepts of intersectionality theory include moving away from additive thinking, relationality, and social constructionism. An important challenge is how to incorporate these concepts into…

Wilson, Elena; Kenny, Amanda; Dickson-Swift, Virginia – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2018
Community-Based Participatory Research (CBPR) has been proposed as an equitable, empowering partnership approach to collaborative research. International literature about the ethical implications of CBPR suggests a continuing strong interest in the topic. However, there is a notable lack of research that captures the "experience" of…

Walters, Glenn D. – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2018
As research on mediation has grown, so too has interest in identifying ways to assess the size of indirect effects in a mediation analysis. One such estimate -- the ratio of the indirect effect to the total effect (P[subscript M]) -- was tested in a sample of 21,297 children from the Early Childhood Developmental Study. Results showed that the two…

Kohrs, Kirsten – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2018
Multimodal studies posit that meaning is not only communicated through spoken and written words, but also through other modes such as images, gesture, gaze, proximity etc. The widespread availability of high-quality, miniaturised audio and video recording and storing technology has made multimodal data collection cheap and easy. However, the…

Höhne, Jan Karem; Krebs, Dagmar – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2018
The effect of the response scale direction on response behavior is a well-known phenomenon in survey research. While there are several approaches to explaining how such response order effects occur, the literature reports mixed evidence. Furthermore, different question formats seem to vary in their susceptibility to these effects. We therefore…

Mostafa, Tarek; Wiggins, Richard D. – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2018
This study constitutes the first longitudinal exploration of consent to link survey and administrative data. It examines variations in consent over time and explores the influence of the respondents' characteristics (both observed and latent) and the impact of the interviewers on consent co-operation. Respondent inclination to consent is modelled…

Vogl, Susanne; Zartler, Ulrike; Schmidt, Eva-Maria; Rieder, Irene – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2018
Collecting multiple perspectives data (e.g. from related individuals) in a qualitative longitudinal design can provide rich understanding of the dynamics at play in complex relational systems, and the different perceptions of people involved. However, such approaches are inherently challenging due to the complexity and volume of data involved. So…

Thorpe, Rachel; Hawkes, Gail; Dune, Tinashe; Fileborn, Bianca; Pitts, Marian; Minichiello, Victor – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2018
This paper examines the role of the research process in shaping the construction of knowledge about sensitive topics in in-depth interviews particularly with regard to researcher identity and cultural influences or norms. We argue that these influences shape all aspects of the research process and that researchers will benefit from reflecting upon…

Keikelame, Mpoe Johannah – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2018
Issues of positionality of Black African researchers researching African issues is seldom discussed in methodological literature. In this article, I reflect from an African perspective on issues of insider/outsider positionalities and of serendipity and unexpectedness during my fieldwork which are areas often dominated by writing from the global…

Thomas-Hughes, Helen – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2018
Co-producing research is complex and messy. This paper draws on Tina Cook's argument for the systematic inclusion of 'mess' in research accounts as a conceptual framework through which to articulate areas of ethical mess from within a co-produced research project. Through narrating the 'messy' ethical complications the paper illustrates a number…

Sligo, J. L.; Nairn, K. M.; McGee, R. O. – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2018
Mixed methods research requires integration of qualitative and quantitative data. However, there is debate about how to define integration and what is required for integration to occur. This paper describes a mixed methods research project which revisits datasets from different eras, which were originally instigated for different purposes and had…

Nir, Esther – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2018
Qualitative research with political elites provides unique opportunities to access intimate details regarding the perceptions and opinions of key decision-makers; yet limited scholarly attention has been directed at the difficulties involved in recruiting these groups for interviews. In this article, I outline a series of targeted strategies aimed…

Blaikie, Norman – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2018
The debate on determining sample size in qualitative research is confounded by four fundamental methodological issues: the exclusive focus on theme analysis; the diverse and imprecise use of 'qualitative'; a reliance on only two logics of inquiry, "induction" and "deduction," and the occasional confusion of…

Sim, Julius; Saunders, Benjamin; Waterfield, Jackie; Kingstone, Tom – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2018
There has been considerable recent interest in methods of determining sample size for qualitative research a priori, rather than through an adaptive approach such as saturation. Extending previous literature in this area, we identify four distinct approaches to determining sample size in this way: rules of thumb, conceptual models, numerical…

Bernard, Josef; Danková, Hana; Vašát, Petr – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2018
Respondent-driven sampling (RDS) is a survey method for hidden populations and, as such, it offers a suitable approach for sampling the homeless. Surprisingly, the practical use of RDS in surveying homeless populations has only sporadically been described in the professional literature so far, and the specifics of using RDS for sampling this group…
