My paper “Exploring social relationships in “a mixed way”: Mixed Structural Analysis” was accepted for presentation at the next AERA Annual Meeting in Toronto in April 2019. If you prefer to read about this, wait for the soon-to-be-published edited volume on Mixed Methods Social Network Analysis: Theories and Methodologies in Learning and Education.

If you are interested in social network analysis and happen to speak German, you should get yourself the newly published “Schlüsselwerke der Netzwerkforschung”. It’s a massive book that contains many short summaries and evaluations of important social network related texts. Find more information at the book’s homepage. I contributed a chapter focusing on Burt (2005): Brokerage and Closure.

Aim of this edited volume
The objective of this book is to give a practical overview of different methods applicable to analyze group interactions. Each chapter will focus on a distinct qualitative, quantitative, or mixed methodological approach.
Against this backdrop, we invite abstracts for chapters that address methodological approaches to analyze group interactions. All chapters of the book will have the same structure and should not be longer than 5000 words, to provide the idea of a practical useful overview.

A paper I have written with Judith Schoonenboom and Burke Johnson was published this week. It’s open access an you can find it here.
In the mixed methods literature over the past 25 years, purposes of mixing have typically been treated as characteristics of an overall mixed methods design. However, many purposes operate on a within-study basis rather than applying to the entire study. Furthermore, in perhaps the majority of studies, researchers rely on multiple purposes of mixing. For example, an explanatory-sequential design will often include more purposes than just “explanation.” Some purposes are identified at the beginning of the study, and other purposes emerge during the conduct of the study. We demonstrate how multiple purposes are identified and incorporated into a design by examining a published research study (Glewwe, Kremer, & Moulin, 2009). We emphasize that all mixed methods research (MMR) authors need to be explicit about the multiple “mixed methods purposes” operating in a research study. Following this recommendation will help MMR become more sophisticated about mixing and integration, and it will increase the transparency of our research.
