The Mixed Methods International Research Association (MMIRA) has been established with the aim of creating an international community to promote and support interdisciplinary mixed methods research. MMIRA seeks to engage with a broad set of approaches in the service of understanding complex social, behavioral, health, educational, and political concerns related to the human condition and natural world. Our vision includes bringing together diverse communities of scholars, students, practitioners, policymakers, citizens, and other stakeholders, with the goals of expanding knowledge and producing social betterment and social and global justice.
Membership fees have been modestly set at $50/year for a regular membership, $20 per year for students/emeritus/retired members, $5.00/year for students/professors/citizens in developing nations, and an institutional membership for $100/year.
