[en] In recent years, combining quantitative and qualitative research methods in the same study has become more and more acceptable in both applied and academic psychological research. However, a difficulty for many mixed methods researchers is how to integrate findings consistently. The value of using a coherent framework throughout the research process is discussed. Arguments are illustrated by referring to a study on individual- and cultural-level influences on attitudes to sexual health behaviours conducted with adolescents in Germany and England between 2005 and 2009. The article concludes that using an appropriate framework throughout the research process can ensure integration of findings in a consistent and coherent way. This can improve mixed-methods research and produce greater “yield’ (O’Cathain et al., 2007, 147).
