Abstract

Multimethod research is an attempt to combine research methods to address a particular research problem. The term multimethod research encompasses a wide range of research strategies: it may be deployed strategically, it may be used over the course of a research project, and it may breach the qualitative/quantitative divide or it may be practiced within each camp. Multimethod research is widely practiced in human geography, although since the end of the 1990s, there has been little direct debate on this approach to research among geographers. Contemporary debates on mixed-method research in the wider academy are pertinent to understanding the use, potential and actual, of multimethod research in human geography.
