Despite positivist traditions mixed methods (MM) research is increasingly being used in management disciplines. The aim of the study is to examine the use and quality of MM in project management research. A content analysis of articles from three project management journals was undertaken. The MM articles identified were analysed in terms of sequencing, dominance and integration. Our findings suggest the need for capacity building in relation to the good reporting of MM studies. We conclude that the study of complex phenomena can benefit from MM in a field needing to b r e a k f r e e from a level of methodological inertia.
