    Mixed Methods Research: What It is and What It Could Be.Rob Timans, Paul Wouters & Johan Heilbron - 2019 - Theory and Society 48 (2):193-216.
    Combining methods in social scientific research has recently gained momentum through a research strand called Mixed Methods Research. This approach, which explicitly aims to offer a framework for combining methods, has rapidly spread through the social and behavioural sciences, and this article offers an analysis of the approach from a field theoretical perspective. After a brief outline of the MMR program, we ask how its recent rise can be understood. We then delve deeper into some of the specific elements that (...)

    Not Another Case Study: A Middle-Range Interrogation of Ethnographic Case Studies in the Exploration of E-Science.Paul Wouters, Andrea Scharnhorst & Anne Beaulieu - 2007 - Science, Technology, and Human Values 32 (6):672-692.
    This article addresses the need to problematize “cases” in science and technology studies work, as a middle-range theory issue. The focus is not on any one case study per se, but on why case studies exist and endure in STS. Case studies are part of a specific problematization in the field. We therefore explore relations between motivation for the use of cases, their constitution, and ways they can be invoked to make particular kinds of arguments in STS. We set out (...)

    From Eminent Men to Excellent Universities: University Rankings as Calculative Devices.Björn Hammarfelt, Sarah de Rijcke & Paul Wouters - 2017 - Minerva 55 (4):391-411.
    Global university rankings have become increasingly important ‘calculative devices’ for assessing the ‘quality’ of higher education and research. Their ability to make characteristics of universities ‘calculable’ is here exemplified by the first proper university ranking ever, produced as early as 1910 by the American psychologist James McKeen Cattell. Our paper links the epistemological rationales behind the construction of this ranking to the sociopolitical context in which Cattell operated: an era in which psychology became institutionalized against the backdrop of the eugenics (...)
