Abstract: There is interest in promoting greater use of qualitative methods in health care research. However, little is known about the volume or characteristics of published studies that use qualitative methods. This article explores these issues through a systematic review of 3 years (1995-1997) of articles classified as research in nine core health services research and management journals. The findings show that only about one in seven published research articles used qualitative methods. Two of the nine journals reviewed contributed 45 percent of the total number of articles using qualitative methods. Four journals contributed a combined 2 percent of this total number The primary purposes in using these methods are description and articulating stakeholder perspectives. There is no standard number of pages devoted by journals to these studies or evidence that they require more journal space on average than quantitative studies. Most of the studies reviewed presented little or no information on methodology These findings clarify future areas of emphasis for both editors and researchers wishing to promote the use of qualitative methodology in published health care research.
