(No abstract provided. The following is the first paragraph): Q methodology is a research approach that is neither fully qualitative nor fully quantitative and is thus a bridge between the two approaches. It is little known nor understood in nursing and deserves to have a much higher profile. It has been used extensively by psychologists and social scientists, and lends itself to many uses in nursing research. In this editorial we will give you a brief overview of its use and application.
