2nd International Symposium on Qualitative Research
Jul 12 – Jul 13 all-day

The Organizing Committee invites the community to submit proposals to the 2nd International Symposium on Qualitative Research to be held in Salamanca (Spain), on days 12 and 13 July 2017.

Spanish Renaissance city par excellence, Salamanca is a World Heritage Site offering its visitors an unique experience, in every hidden corner and historic building. ISQR2017 will take place at the University of Salamanca, which is preparing to celebrate its Eighth Centenary in 2018.

Authors may submit proposals for presentation of papers that meet the goals and themes of the Symposium, including original scientific articles addressing revisions to the state of the art research and new perspectives, solutions and / or applications to real problems, empirical and / or evaluation, among others.

IMPORTANT: being an international conference on Qualitative Research, 1/3 of the article should have a focus on methodology. This approach should analyze the relation between research questions, theories and results and the methodology used. The conclusions should reflect the importance of the methodology based on the results of the work and the literature already published on the subject. Articles that do not meet this criterion will be returned for correction or rejected.
