Dear QRAM Members & Colleagues,


The Association of Qualitative Research Association of Malaysia is pleased to host the 4th International Qualitative Research Convention in 2007 (QRC2007).  

QRC2007 is held biannually and the theme for this 2007 convention is “Doing Qualitative Research: Processes, Issues and Challenges". The objective of the QRC2007 is to provide a better understanding of what really constitutes qualitative research and enhance researchers’ knowledge on qualitative inquiry. The growing interest of researchers in using qualitative methods has resulted in many practitioners and academicians who equate using qualitative techniques, such as interviews and observations, to doing qualitative study.  The convention will also enable participants to present the results of their recent work as well as discuss issues and challenges involved in the processes of qualitative research.

QRC2007 invites proposals from a wide variety of international perspectives, including academics and practitioners from psychology, sociology, education, evaluation, health sciences, geography, communication, management, family studies, marketing, social work, and other related disciplines across the social, behavioral, and human sciences. We welcome your work whether it is in progress or a completed piece.  Hence, QRC2007 seeks: 

(1) original research in the social, behavioral, health, and human sciences that fits the definition of qualitative research methods.  These studies need to include some aspects of their research that advance knowledge of qualitative inquiry in addition to making a contribution to a substantive area in the scholar’s field of inquiry;

(2) methodological issues that advance knowledge about qualitative research methods. Proposals may be on topics concerned with qualitative research methods and processes (which include all aspects and stages of qualitative research process), innovative theories and techniques, and qualitative reporting focusing on the report writing, researcher’s role and experiences during fieldwork.

We hope you will also take the time to visit the many interesting places in Kuala Lumpur and its surrounding areas as well as enjoy our local cuisine. Briefly, Malaysia has a population of over 25 million people who reside in Peninsular Malaysia and East Malaysia, namely, the states of Sabah and Sarawak on Borneo island.  The country prides itself with the harmonious existence of various races as a nation. While the majority consists of Malays, Chinese, Indians, other ethnic groups that include Ibans and Kandazandusuns make up the colourful and vibrant Malaysian society.  Malaysia’s official language is bahasa Malaysia (Malay Language), and English is widely spoken. The official religion of Malaysia is Islam, and the nation comprises Moslems, Buddhists, Hindus, Christians and followers of other religions.  The various ethnic groups, cultures and languages make Malaysia, truly Asia. For more information about Kuala Lumpur, please visit

We hope the convention will be an enjoyable and fruitful experience for all of you.

Best Wishes,

Professor Dr. Marohaini Yusoff

Convention Chair of the 4th QRC2007
