An open letter to BMJ about qualitative research


CRiHHI affiliate Sally Thorne was one of three initiating authors of an open letter to the editors of the British Medical Journal (BMJ).

In the letter, seventy-six senior academics from 11 countries invite The BMJ’s editors to reconsider their policy of rejecting qualitative research on the grounds of low priority. They challenge the journal to develop a proactive, scholarly, and pluralist approach to research that aligns with its stated mission.
