Dear All,
A reminder that submissions for presenting papers and participation for the following workshop are now open.
I look forward to welcoming all participants to London in October.

Qualitative and Mixed Methods in Research Policy (QMM2015) Workshop
Exploring Qualitative and Mixed Methodological Approaches in the Evaluation and Research Policy Field

1-2 October, 2015
Brunel University London
London, United Kingdom.

Current and future challenges in the field of Research and Evaluation Policy require researchers to embrace broader methodological approaches. This includes moving beyond strong quantitative tools such as bibliometrics, network analysis and econometrics, towards adopting sophisticated qualitative and/or mixed methodological research designs.
Supported by the British Academy, this workshop aims to showcase current research involving qualitative or mixed methodological research designs in the research evaluation and innovation policy field.
We also aim to work towards establishing an international network of researchers interested in strengthening the quality and reputation of qualitative and mixed methodological research studies in the field.  To this end, through presentation of submissions, and related discussion, participants will work together to establish clear guidelines of good practice for qualitative and mixed methodological studies in the field.

We invite researchers in the field to submit an extended abstract (max 1000 words) by Friday 31 July 2015 of research that utilises or explores qualitative and/or mixed methods approaches to address research or evaluation policy issues.

Submissions should draw attention to the qualitative or mixed methodological approach adopted, as well as any unique perspectives that adopting such a methodological design brings to the field.

All submissions are to be made via the Easychair platform

Who should attend?
Both researchers in the field as well as EU and UK policymakers would benefit from the research presentations, discussions and networking opportunities offered at the workshop.
Please note: A £50 participation fee will be charged to cover catering costs.
We look forward to welcoming you to London in October.  For any questions or queries, please contact Gemma Derrick on gemma.derrick at<mailto:gemma.derrick at>
