International Review of Qualitative Research Call for Papers

posted Jan 4, 2018, 4:58 AM by Rich McPherson

This is a call for papers for a special issue of the journal International Review of Qualitative Research on the topic of participatory action research (PAR). We are looking for innovative papers that address a broad range of topics focusing on PAR as a research methodology, but including  controversies and ethical challenges, social justice issues, work with Indigenous peoples and other populations, PAR in different countries and contexts, and the roles of research participants. Readers of this journal come from a broad range of backgrounds as qualitative researchers and our hope here is to provide them with a sense of the multitude of ways in which PAR is being carried out to address critical problems from around the world. We ask that papers provide a definition of PAR, describe the PAR methods you use in some detail, and show how your work benefits communities and organizations. We ask that you submit a 1-2 page summary of your paper by March 31.  Invitations for submissions of full manuscripts will be sent by April 30, 2018 with final drafts due by December 31, 2018.

You can send your abstract/brief paper to Michael Kral at or Mary Brydon-Miller at
