Cameron, R 2008, 'Mixed methods in management research: has the phoenix landed?', Proceedings of Managing the Pacific Century: 22nd annual Australian and New Zealand Academy of Management (ANZAM) Conference: , Auckland, NZ, 2-5 December, Australian and New Zealand Academy of Management, Auckland, NZ.
Mixed methods research is an emerging methodological movement with a growing body of trans-disciplinary literature. Prominent research methodologists/authorities from across discipline fields are emerging and guiding the commentary and the movements’ momentum. This paper reports the findings of a study that has systematically reviewed refereed papers from the 21st Australian and New Zealand Academy of Management (ANZAM) Conference 2007. The aim of the study is to provide a methodological map of the management research reported at the conference, and in particular the use of mixed methods research. The data will be compared to similar research conducted on international business research in four major journals. Implications for management research training and publication are discussed with particular reference to the Academy.
