There are some amazing resources for qualitative researchers on the Internet.
Ron Chenail of Nova Southeastern University in Florida has maintained an informative and well managed online learning site for qualitative researchers for many years. For example, The Qualitative Report Community offers an impressive compilation of calls for papers, proposals and abstracts of interest to qualitative researchers.
Dr. Susan Hawes, a professor in the Clinical Psychology Department at Antioch University developed an impressive website for her graduate students. See the Online Qualitative Research Resources Home Page for a listing of Qualitative Research megasites, journals, writing guidelines, and links to QDA (qualitative data analysis) software information.
St. Louis University hosts a lengthy compilation of Qualitative Research Journals. The page hasn’t been updated in a couple of years, but as far as I know, all of the journals listed still accept qualitative research studies.
Qualitative research may, at times, seem like an exotic enterprise. But given all the rich resources available, and the wonderful work underway and already published, I think “we” are going to be around for quite some time to come! So — enjoy the lovely spring weather and be grateful for all the adventures you have had (and will have) as qualitative researchers. –EdProf
