WCQR 2019

4th World Conference on Qualitative Research

The World Conference on Qualitative Research (WCQR) is an annual event that aims to bring together researchers, academics and professionals, promoting the sharing and discussion of knowledge, new perspectives, experiences and innovations on the field of Qualitative Research. The growing success of previous editions is an important indicator of a multidisciplinary, committed and involved community in the context of qualitative research.

The 4th World Conference on Qualitative Research will take place in Porto (Portugal), 16th to 18th October 2019. We believe WCQR will continue its growth in the number and quality of submissions, confirming itself as one of the main worldwide events on qualitative research. The main objective is for WCQR to maintain the indicators of success with each new edition, encouraging the submission of scientific works that focus on several fields of application in Qualitative Research, from Education to Health, Social Sciences, Engineering and Technology, among others, as well as a crosswise and holistic view, with the approach of several themes and dimensions of research.
