Abstract

Mixed‐methods research (MMR) is attracting researchers' attention in the field of second language (L2) writing because of its capability to integrate both quantitative and qualitative research strands in principled ways. When mixed together, quantitative and qualitative approaches to research can complement each other and will enable L2 writing researchers to discuss findings from one research strand in light of the results obtained from the other strand and thus to draw stronger and more beneficial conclusions. The present entry elaborates on this position; it briefly discusses the five purposes of mixing quantitative and qualitative research and how L2 writing researchers may use MMR. As a case in point, a review will be presented of 15 published L2 writing‐research studies, along with some implications and recommendations for L2 writing researchers as how to come to grips with MMR in their research projects.
