Draft Reports of Qualitative Transparency Deliberations Available for Discussion at APSA 2017

After more than a year of consultation and discussion, the Qualitative Transparency Deliberations (QTD) working groups have released their draft reports at www.qualtd.net for public comment. These draft reports examine the meaning, practice, and norms of transparency, openness and explicitness, separately for different forms of qualitative research. We invite all political scientists to two APSA 2017 events at which these reports will be presented and discussed.

An APSA theme roundtable on “The Qualitative Transparency Deliberations: A Discussion of the Draft Final Reports” will take place at 8am on Saturday, Sept. 2, at the Hilton in Imperial A. We will also be holding a lunchtime drop-in session for informal discussion with members of the QTD working groups from 12:00pm to 1:30pm on Saturday, Sept. 2, at the Hilton in Franciscan B. We invite all colleagues to join the conversation at these two events.
