    How do we maintain momentum for qualitative work, particularly utilizing grounded theory, when we so often will face challenges? Uninformed reviewers, "doubts" about your narrative, and (potentially) bias against qualitative research are all very real. While it is just as difficult to publish a quantitative as qualitative paper, the reality is, grounded theory takes a great deal of time. Given the pressures of tenure clocks and a field focused on "hits" how can we manage? In this seminar I will offer insights from my experience on: 1) conducting thorough and well-written grounded theory, 2) maintaining momentum on projects that appear to be struggling, and 3) writing and (occasionally) publishing grounded theory research.
