Apr 29, 2018 12:15pm ‐ Apr 29, 2018 1:15pm


Developing strong qualitative research designs and quality manuscripts for publication in national journals are challenging for new scholars and scholars-in-training. This session discusses some of the most common and egregious pitfalls and missing links to good qualitative research and manuscript design, towards better success in publishing trustworthy qualitative research and quality manuscripts, from the perspectives of two journal reviewers/editor at several national/international journals.

This presentation will offer recommendations to improve qualitative research design and manuscript development. The presenters will share their experiences reviewing for several top national counseling journals, with a special attention on how researchers can craft more effective qualitative studies and focus on essential aspects of qualitative research manuscript development.

Learning Objectives:

  • To explore the barriers and challenges to developing strong and trustworthy qualitative research design.
  • To provide awareness of key elements to include in crafting a quality qualitative research manuscript.
  • To offer guidance to increase success at publication from the national journal reviewer lens.
