John W. Creswell’s A Concise Introduction to Mixed Methods Research is a brief overview of mixed methods research that takes readers through the essential steps in planning and designing a study. Rather than offering an extensive treatment of mixed methods, this concise book offers individuals in the social, behavioral, and health sciences a foundation for understanding mixed methods methodology. Practical for use in workshops, seminars, global webinars, and as a supplementary text in undergraduate and graduate classes, Creswell’s book is ideal for the beginner or the more advanced researcher looking for a quick primer in mixed methods, by an authoritative mixed methods scholar.

For a comprehensive treatment of Mixed Methods research, we recommend Designing and Conducting Mixed Methods Research, by John W. Creswell and Vicki J. Plano Clark.

John W. Creswell is a Professor of Educational Psychology at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. In addition to teaching at the University, he has authored numerous articles on mixed methods research, qualitative methodology, and general research design and 22 books (including new editions), many of which focus on types of research designs, comparisons of different qualitative methodologies, and the nature and use of mixed methods research. His books are translated into many languages and used around the world. He held the Clifton Institute Endowed Professor Chair for five years at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. For an additional five year, Dr. Creswell served as a co-director at the Office of Qualitative and Mixed Methods Research at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, which provided support for scholars incorporating qualitative and mixed methods research into projects for extramural funding. He served as the founding Co-Editor for the SAGE journal, the Journal of Mixed Methods Research, and as an Adjunct Professor of Family Medicine at the University of Michigan where he assisted investigators in the health sciences and education with research methodology for National Institutes of Health and National Science Foundation projects. He also served extensively as a consultant in the health services research area for the Veterans Administration. Dr. Creswell was a Senior Fulbright Scholar to South Africa and in 2008 lectured to faculty at five universities on mixed methods in education and the health sciences. In 2012 he again was a Senior Fulbright Scholar to Thailand. In 2011 he served as a co-leader of a national working group at NIH developing ''best practices'' for mixed methods research in the health sciences. In spring 2013, Dr. Creswell was a Visiting Professor at Harvard’s School of Public Health. In summer, 2013, he conducted mixed methods training at Cambridge University in the UK. In 2014, he will be awarded an honorary doctorate from the University of Pretoria in South Africa.
