Abstract

Framing the 14 contributions included in this special issue on "Advances in Qualitative Research in Ibero America" within the cultural complexity of our current world is the objective of this introduction. The particularity of doing qualitative research in specific local, national, and even language contexts should not be overlooked. A brief description of each article is provided to introduce this new issue on qualitative research practices in some of the peripheries of our globalized academic world.
