Guide to Qualitative Research Journals, curated by Ronald J. Chenail

The Qualitative Report "Guide to Qualitative Research Journals"

According to Dr. Ronald J. Chenail, Editor-in-Chief of the journal, The Qualitative Report, you can use this list to "explore the world of professional, scholarly, and academic journals publishing qualitative research. The number and variety of journals focusing primarily on qualitative approaches to research have steadily grown over the last forty years. From discipline- or profession-specific to trans-, cross-, and multidisciplinary missions, these journals represent a richly diverse approach to qualitative inquiry."

Note that some of these journals may be open source and freely available online and others are accessible via the library collection. The library does not subscribe to every journal on the list however.
