You can find mixed-method research studies by searching in the Library databases using methodology terms as search keywords. Possible keywords include the type of study, data analysis type, or terminology used to describe the results.
The following search uses Thoreau, our multi-database search tool, to find examples of mixed-method research studies. However, you can search in any article or dissertation database for mixed-method research studies.
- On the Library homepage, type your general term in the main search box:
- Sign in with your myWalden username and password when prompted.
- Type more methodology terms in the first search box. Use as many alternative terms as are relevant to your search.
- If you need to find a study that looks at a specific topic, add topic keywords to the other search boxes.
- Click the Search button to run your search.

"Mixed Method*" OR Multimethod
