This network is no longer active

We are a network of academic and research staff interested in qualitative research. The network was set up in 2010 and was initially funded by the Adam Smith Research Foundation Seedcorn Fund. In 2011 we received funding from the Research Led Initiative Fund and the Employability Award Panel (School of Social and Political Sciences) to continue and extend the network. With this funding there is potential for involving more postgraduate research students.

The aim of the network is to bring together researchers with an interest in empirical, methodological and theoretical aspects of qualitative research. Specifically, it aims to provide a space to:

  • discuss and develop aspects of qualitative research
  • provide peer support to qualitative researchers
  • build a resource for qualitative researchers that members of the network can contribute to via a dedicated website
