Qualitative Research Hub


The Qualitative Research Hub was established by Dr Melissa Day and Dr Karen Rodham in 2022 to serve as a forum for encouraging the development of qualitative research across all disciplines.

While qualitative methodologies have provided exciting and challenging ways of doing research for some time now, the road to establishing their legitimacy has been rocky, with many disciplines dominated by (post-) positivist empiricist research paradigms.

Despite these challenges, however, qualitative research has continued to flourish across many areas, with a variety of qualitative-specific journals, conferences and societies leading the way.

Embracing these developments, our Qualitative Research Hub is building an open community of qualitative researchers in West Sussex, with the aim of widening interdisciplinary discourse, fostering new ways of thinking and embracing new and innovative research methodologies.
