Group Concept Mapping Publications Spotlight

This month, researchers utilized the method to examine knowledge transfer and educational issues; to better understand the experience of police, healthcare workers and adolescent mothers; sports participation and injury prevention; and the intersection of health and rehabilitation on human rights and discrimination.

The variety of applications of our method is rewarding for us to see.  If you’ve published in the last few months and don’t see your publication below, please get in touch with us.  We want to share your work with others and learn from it ourselves.  Thank you to all the authors who have provided us with publications.

Congratulations, authors!

What Authors are Saying About Group Concept Mapping

“This process is used widely in program development and evaluation, and in basic research throughout the social sciences, because it facilitates a rich understanding of disparate, nascent, or otherwise difficult-to-express concepts through numbers, graphics, and narrative (Trochim, 1989). We chose this method because it yields data more efficiently, is more versatile analytically, and is less expensive than traditional qualitative research. In addition, it gives voice to participants who not only provide data, but are also actively involved in data analysis and interpretation.”
