    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    The purpose of this paper is to assist social work doctoral students, practitioners, and faculty in the art and craft of creating and disseminating qualitative research in professional periodicals. Interest in qualitative research has increased significantly over the course of the past few decades in social work discourse. Despite the increased legitimacy of the qualitative enterprise, questions still remain about what is considered good qualitative work. To help address this issue, the present paper delineates a number of guidelines for writing and disseminating qualitative manuscripts in referred journals, perhaps especially those based in America.
