‘I’m Her Partner, Let Me In!’ Bringing the Narrative to Academic Papers
Authors: Jones, K.

My colleague at Bournemouth University, Lee-Ann Fenge, and I have collaborated on many qualitative projects over the years, several specifically arts-led, and have then contributed articles to academic journals about these endeavors. We are particularly attracted to the natural story-telling element of qualitative research or a “narrative approach,” and report on it often. Narrative methods contribute greatly to the advances made in qualitative research. In a recent article in Creative Approaches to Research, we suggest that a narrative style also can be promoted by the way that we present our data in academic journal publications.
