Qualitative Research Consultants Association (QRCA) - QRCA Views Magazine, Fall 2020

QUALITATIVE RESEARCH COVID-19 has brought an abrupt halt to our way of life as we know it. As you read this, we are all adapting to a new “normal.” The call for articles in each VIEWS issue is put out months in advance. Thus, when the author submitted this article, COVID-19 had just hit the U.S. As we move forward and lean into coping with this invisible disrupter, I am hopeful that travel resumes safely and that we let go of fear. That we can ramp up enthusiasm for explora- tion locally and globally. This article was written with you, the researcher with wanderlust, in mind. —Roben Allong, Feature Editor n BUSINESS MATTERS n from the R.O.A.D. 24 QRCA VIEWS FALL 2020 www.qrca.org
