    Dear Jill,
    I am happy to contribute to the “Methods” section with a mixed-method approach, which I employ in my Living Lab, “in the wild” settings.
    I essentially have 1) cumulative surveys/interviews, 2) Day reconstruction Method interview/diary 3) Ecological Momentary Assessment and 4) smartphone context logger. The triangulation of these methods helps to assess a phenomena I am researching e.g., intimacy perception or stress in a continuous, longitudinal, unobtrusive and accurate manner, comparing to ‘just’ questionnaires. I am about to publish a paper on the method and its reproducibility concerns.

    Given that, how can I contribute to this group, please?

    Regards
    Katarzyna Wac

    Dear Kate
    Thank you very much for this.
    As it is the first time we have a forum like this I will ask ISQOLS Office to send the invitation to all the members to begin to participate so more people can read the publications you kindly share with us.
    We are in contact.
    Best wishes
    Graciela
