Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To provide an overview of qualitative methods, particularly for reviewers and authors who may be less familiar with qualitative research.

METHODS:

A question and answer format is used to address considerations for writing and evaluating qualitative research.

RESULTS AND CONCLUSIONS:

When producing qualitative research, individuals are encouraged to address the qualitative research considerations raised and to explicitly identify the systematic strategies used to ensure rigor in study design and methods, analysis, and presentation of findings. Increasing capacity for review and publication of qualitative research within pediatric psychology will advance the field's ability to gain a better understanding of the specific needs of pediatric populations, tailor interventions more effectively, and promote optimal health.
