AIMS AND SCOPE
Aims and scope
The Malaysian Journal of Qualitative Research (MJQR) is an annual publication of the Qualitative Research Association of Malaysia (QRAM). Qualitative research methods are defined as research in which the researcher collects and analyzes data, and reports research findings using qualitative approaches or methods in a programme of inquiry.
The aims of MJQR are:
To promote and enhance the understanding of qualitative research and its applications.
To serve as a platform for a forum on the fundamental topics of qualitative research, including matters of ethics.
To facilitate the sharing of ideas and critical problems faced by qualitative researchers and practitioners.
To provide an avenue for researchers and practitioners to exchange ideas on the practical applications of qualitative research
To serve as an outlet for sharing and dissemination of qualitative research work in Malaysia and outside Malaysia
MJQR seeks empirical research studies from a variety of perspectives, including academics and practitioners in the field of gender and women studies, family studies, social work, psychology, sociology, education, evaluation, religious studies, geography, communication, management, marketing, accounting, health science, and other related disciplines across the social, behavioural, and human sciences. We welcome your work whether it is in progress or a completed piece. Hence, MJQR seeks:
i. Research in the social, behavioural, health, and human sciences that employs qualitative research methods. Apart from the presentation of qualitative findings, these studies need to include aspects of their research that advance knowledge of qualitative inquiry.
ii. Methodological issues that advance knowledge about qualitative research methods that span across the social, behavioural, health, and human sciences. The topics may include all aspects and stages of qualitative processes, the various techniques of data collection and analysis, innovative theories and techniques, use of technology in qualitative research, ethics and qualitative reporting focusing on the report writing, researcher’s experiences and roles during fieldwork.
