    Hello fellow researchers,


    I share with you a recently published article on the application of mixed methods in the study of abortion in developing countries:


    Edmeades et al. 2010. “Methodological Innovation in Studying Abortion in Developing Countries: A “Narrative” Quantitative Survey in Madhya Pradesh, India.” Journal of Mixed Methods Research. 4(3):1-22. (forthcoming: published OnlineFirst)



    I trust many of you will have access to the full text as it is a Sage-published journal.


    It blends quantitative and qualitative methods in a single survey instrument, rather than in the traditional qualitative-quantitative-qualitative sequence.  Substantive findings have been/are being published elsewhere.  I would be very interested in your reactions to the methodology, particularly with regards to whether the inclusion of the qualitative within a survey is valuable and what other applications and adaptations this method may have.  I would also be interested in hearing from others who are doing innovative survey research in other areas of reproductive health and allied issues.
