Mixed-Methods Laboratory

The mixed-methods laboratory is an offer provided by the division of Organizational Health Services Research to colleagues with an interest in methodological approaches in health services research. Our aim is to develop and promote the integration of qualitative and quantitative research methods in the field of (organizational) health services research. Of course, we also provide support for research projects that exclusively use qualitative or quantitative methods.

We focus on:

  • Reconstructive approaches (e. g. objective hermeneutics) and content analysis as well as various forms of meta-synthesis of qualitative studies (Milena von Kutzleben)


  • Survey design ant the development and implementation of standardized quantitative surveys. The Mixed-Methods Laboratory is equipped with the appropriate software and hardware and we are happy to help you with the technical implementation of your questionnaire-based surveys (Johanna Lubasch, Helge Schnack Anna Zinkevich).

We offer a regular research workshop for joint work on qualitative data, e.g. interview material, knowledge transfer, e. g. short training courses or input, and a consultation hour for individual enquiries.

In order for the Mixed Methods Laboratory to become a lively place for scientific exchange, your topics, questions, data and, above all, your willingness to discuss are in demand!

Therefore, we invite you to our research workshop. In a research workshop all phases of a qualitative research process can be discussed. It is all about “joint thinking”, e.g. discussion on research questions, designs, sampling strategies, ethical aspects etc. and “hands-on data analysis”. A research workshop thrives on regular collaboration in which each participant has the opportunity to contribute his or her own content.
