Dear All,

I would like to inform you that FQS 14(2) is available online (see for the current issue and for former issues). FQS 14(2) provides a collection of single contributions as well as articles belonging to the FQS Debates on "Quality of Qualitative Research" and "Teaching and Learning Qualitative Methods," to FQS Reviews, and to FQS Conferences. All in all, 45 authors from 12 countries contributed to FQS 14(2).

The articles are dealing with a variety of methodological and methodical topics (coding, interviews, observation, the use of CAQDAS, visual methods, narrative methods, discourse analysis, translation, data preservation and re-use, qualitative research and "big data") and are providing results from empirical research (on aging, school-to-work transitions, homosexuality in rural settings, self injury, seizure experiences, to mention just a few).
