    Publish your critical, qualitative method research with us!

    Qualitative Research in Organizations and Management (QROM) is an international journal committed to encouraging and publishing critical qualitative work from researchers and practitioners within the management and organizational field throughout the world.

    The journal seeks to provide a forum for qualitative researchers through which they can share their work with others and, in particular, discuss issues of research practice pertinent to qualitative approaches.

    We are looking for articles that don't just arrive at useful findings based on qualitative methods but which:

    • provide an "in-depth" study of the processes involved (e.g., what activities/ interrelationships can be identified in arriving at a particular conclusion?)
    • discuss/reflect on issues of research practice (i.e., what we can learn from applying selected qualitative methods);
    • are critical (i.e., broadly concerned with understanding the impact of managing and organizing on human experience and life chances);
    • are focused on subjective experience (i.e., provides in-depth understanding of what people feel about the processes involved); 
    • are context oriented (e.g., provides understanding of the context in which the study is conducted and the potential influence on the people under study);
    • provides an in-depth account of key aspects of the (qualitative) research applied and the challenges involved (e.g., what methods were used, how/why were they used, and what lessons are to be learned from adopting a particular research strategy)

    QROM is the only journal that focuses exclusively on excellence in qualitative research across the management and organizational discipline. The journal encourages research which is critical, focused on subjective experience and context-oriented. Any topic relevant to organization and management studies is suitable. 

    To encourage reflexive practice and the dissemination of critical skills in the field, the journal includes a section entitled Insider Accounts, where authors can give a frank and in-depth account of some aspect of their (qualitative) research practice. Book Reviews of relevant texts are also published under the auspices of the Book Review Editor.

    Research stemming from qualitative techniques covers a spectrum of methods and can be located within a wide range of epistemological perspectives. Many of these techniques are not well known or utilized by researchers in the management and organizational studies arena despite the potentially unique perspectives they provide on important and contemporary management research issues. We encourage submissions from all epistemological perspectives that are broadly critical.
