19th Annual Institute in Qualitative Research: Writing Qualitative Research Proposals & Reports
8:00 am – 4:00 pm
Hampton Inn & Suites Carrboro/Chapel Hill

The focus of this institute is on concrete strategies to produce competitive qualitative research proposals (with emphasis on NIH grants) and research reports publishable in high-quality peer-reviewed journals.

The Institute will cover an array of topics including techniques to communicate the significance and methodological details of a planned study, managing responses to reviewer concerns raised in a prior submission, selecting the right style, logic, and structure for the research report, effectively using literary (e.g., images, metaphors) and other devices (e.g., quoting, counting, tabulating, diagramming), presenting research results accessible to and translatable by researchers and practitioners, strategically planning multiple reports from a common parent study, and managing reject and revise-and-resubmit responses to submitted manuscripts.

This Institute is designed for faculty and graduate students in the practice disciplines with knowledge of qualitative methods and analysis approaches. Institute participants will have the opportunity to ask questions about their own writing projects.
