Methods: mixed and multiple methods

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingEntry for encyclopedia/dictionary


This article defines multimethod research. Multimethod research continues to be widely practiced in human geography, although there has been little direct debate among geographers since the end of the 1990s of this approach to research. The article starts by defining multimethod research, before progressing to consider its many uses and styles. Two key debates pertaining to epistemology and multimethod research design are then discussed, before conclusions are reached on the future of multimethod research in human geography.
