Mixed methods research, which involves the collection, analysis, and integration of qualitative and quantitative data within a study or coordinated series of studies, appears to hold promise for generalizability. Although generalizability usually applies only to certain types of quantitative methods, transferability can apply in varying degrees to most types of research. Unlike generalizability, transferability does not involve broad claims, but invites readers of research to make connections between elements of a study and their own experience.
