"This text absolutely offers an avenue for introducing new ways of getting at information in the literature and combining it for effective explanations of results using a chosen methodology." -- Juanita A. Johnson
"Each step of the MMRS process is given adequate coverage...This is a great tool for students and novice researchers." -- Tamara Bertrand Jones
"The consistent format of each chapter would provide students with a clear and 'comforting' process for learning the material." -- Wendy G. Troxel
"[The practical tips] are very useful and demonstrate how the information can be utilized in a manner beyond the theoretical discussion of the process." -- Jason S. Wrench

"'Using Mixed Methods Research Synthesis for Literature Review' is a book whose time has come. It provides a thoughtful overview of research synthesis techniques that have been developed from different epistemological traditions. The authors show these traditions complement, rather than compete, with one another. They integrate and present these methods in a practical manner while keeping front and center the importance of the theories underlying the synthesis' constituent research. They argue convincingly that we need to know not only if social policies and practices work but also why and how they work. The ability of social science to contribute to social policy and practice will benefit greatly from the approach to research synthesis contained herein."

-- Harris Cooper

"Here Heyvaert, Hannes and Onghena unpack literature syntheses-both qualitative and quantitative-detailing ways to synthesize, segregate, integrate and even to convert qual findings to quan, or quan to qual. An excellent resource and the next step in moving mixed methods forward!"

-- Janice Morse
