The Spring 2019 Phoenix Scholar is now available in its  sixth rendition since its 2017 inception. In this edition, members of the Research Hub community, University of Phoenix stakeholders, staff, faculty, and doctoral chairs present a closer look at the purpose and value of qualitative research. Ryan Rominger, Ph.D. associate university research chair for the Center for Leadership Studies and Educational Research, opens this edition as he guides readers along the qualitative path and introduces several key stories, including an up close and personal three-way interview featuring prominent researcher Johnny Saldaña, one of the foremost qualitative methodologists of our time, as he addresses poignant questions about his background and contributions from Rodney Luster, VP research and innovation, and Erik Bean, Ed.D, UOPX doctoral alum and CLSER chair. As well, discover the many noteworthy contributions UOPX made at the recent 2019 Qualitative Report Conference (TQR). As well, sample a team of three different researchers whose ideas led to proposed qualitative design changes using the notion of prominence to guide their way. Also, engage the researcher in you by heeding the call to participate in the 2019 Knowledge Without Boundaries Virtual Summit. Brush up on tips that can lead to publication before, during, and after completion of the doctorate.
