Summary

The aim of this issue is to bring together the latest research and practice using qualitative methods in European work and organizational psychology. Work psychology research and practice has traditionally been dominated by the use of quantitative methods. However, the last few years have seen an explosion of interest in qualitative methods and recognition of their potential in casting new light on traditional and emerging issues in the work psychology domain. Despite this, the wide range of qualitative methods used in organizations and work psychology research has not been well documented. By producing this special issue, we hope to stimulate greater interest in alternative and innovative approaches to analysing and understanding work and organizational life.
The papers within the issue focus on the applied use of qualitative methods by work and occupational psychology researchers and practitioners. A range of methods and types of organizations are covered. Additionally, an Editorial and and three commentaries upon the collection are included. These draw out the links between the papers generally and highlight the ways forward for researchers and practitioners keen to use qualitative methods in their own work.
