Research approaches reported in research articles published in APJCE has shown a considerable shift over the 13 years towards a greater use of qualitative research methods. An increase in the number of reported research projects using mixed methods is also evident. It was intended that this paper reported on preliminary finding which would shed light on some research methods trends and inform other researchers on the commonality of these approaches. Further review is required to fully understand other trends in the type of use of research methods and also to explore any trends in publishing patterns.
