Theme Panel: The Qualitative Transparency Deliberations: An Interim Report

Thu, September 1, 10:00 to 11:30am

This roundtable will provide an interim report and discussion on the unfolding Qualitative Transparency Deliberations (QTD) sponsored by the APSA’s Organized Section on Qualitative and Multi-Method Research. Since April 2016, the QTD has involved both far-reaching consultation and intensive deliberation about the benefits, costs, and practicalities of achieving transparency for diverse forms of qualitative empirical research, including process tracing, interpretive inquiry, comparative-historical research, and ethnography. On this panel, members of the QTD Steering Committee will discuss the structure and nature of the deliberative process and the key issues on which the QTD working groups have been focusing their attention, and will provide a preview of some of the approaches to transparency and recommendations emerging from the working-group discussions.
