More recently, however, researchers have explored the possible complementarity of these approaches through mixed methods research (MMR) the so-called third research paradigm. The purpose of this paper is to explore the nature and implications of mixed methods designs for research in sport and exercise psychology. Having sketched the nature and origins of MMR, we highlight some advantages it offers to researchers in sport and exercise psychology. After that, we conclude by identifying some barriers to progress in using mixed methods research in this latter field.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Routledge (Taylor & Francis)||Journal:||Qualitative research in sport, exercise and health||Volume:||3||Issue:||3||Start page:||362||End page:||369||Copyright (published version):||2011, Taylor & Francis||Keywords:||Mixed methods research; Qualitative research; Third paradigm; Sport and exercise psychology; Quantitative research||DOI:||10.1080/2159676X.2011.607843||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||ISBN:||2159-676X (paper)|
