    Bren Neale (University of Leeds), Karen Henwood (Cardiff University), Janet Holland (London South Bank University) United Kingdom. From Qualitative Research.  “This article is from a special issue of Qualitative Research exploring recent advances in Qualitative Longitudinal research methods and the building of QL data resources for sharing and re-use. QL research – qualitative enquiry conducted through or in relation to time – is part of a rich ethnographic tradition, spanning fields as diverse as social anthropology, oral history, and theatre studies. However, until recently QL methodologies were under-developed, datasets were scattered and unavailable, and the literature that explored the contours of the method and promoted its use was sparse. This has begun to change over the past decade. Researchers are routinely seeking to incorporate QL methods into their research design and a growing number of studies, ranging from the lived experience of welfare reform to the dynamics of transport and energy, are being funded by govern­ment, the ESRC and the main UK charities.”
