About SQIP

In 2011, the Society for Qualitative Inquiry in Psychology became an official subdivision of the American Psychological Association Division 5, which was at that time called the Division of Evaluation, Measurement and Statistics. In 2014, Division 5 changed its name to the Division for Quantitative and Qualitative Methods. SQIP aims to develop and disseminate qualitative methods suitable for acquiring knowledge of psychological life (broadly conceived including lived experience, expression, practice, and social conduct). We host an annual conference; award prizes through Division 5 for exemplary dissertations, teaching/mentorship, Early Career Contributions and Distinguished Contributions in qualitative psychology; and have an ongoing series of task forces on topics such as the publication of qualitative research, ethics, and graduate and undergraduate training in qualitative methods. We connect those who are seeking journal reviewers, adjunct professors, and/or research consultants with expertise in qualitative methods with consultants from among our membership who can meet their needs. Our flagship journal, published by APA under the editorship of Ruthellen Josselson, is Qualitative Psychology.
