when discussing robustness analysis of research findings: "1. VOL. Triangulation is the combination of two or more data sources, investigators, methodologic approaches, theoretical perspectives (Denzin, 1970; Kimchi, Polivka, & Stevenson, 1991), or analytical methods (Kimchi et al., 1991) within the same study.

Denzin, Norman K. 1970. In 1959, the term ‘triangulation’ was used in psychology by Campbell and Fiske, who intended to empirically test the results obtained by using different quantitative techniques (CAMPBELL; FISKE, 1959).

NIH The formalised process of triangulation, however, was only described much later (see Denzin, 1978; Jick, 1979; Sieber, 1973). the advantages of triangulation within a research study or program evaluation are numerous. Webb, Eugene J., Donald T. Campbell, Richard D. Schwartz, and Lee Sechrest. Psychol Assess. Campbell, D. T., & Fiske, D. W. (1959). There has been mixed views on the uses of triangulation in researches. COVID-19 is an emerging, rapidly evolving situation. Psychol Assess. 2d ed. A third development is multiple triangulation, including critical multiplism (Cook 1984), which involves the inclusion of multiple theories, methods, measures, observers, observations, and values. involved problems in measurement (Campbell & Fiske, 1959), where the research results actu-ally derived from deficiencies in how the data were captured. Multiple method research designs (‘MMRD’) remain prominent amongst mainstream methodological practices (Campbell and Russo 1999). Webb, Campbell, Schwartz, and Sechrest (1966) extended the idea of (Campbell and Fiske,1959) and defined triangulation as use of multiple measures that “are hypothesized to share in the theoretically relevant components but have different patterns of irrelevant components” (p. 3). Campbell and Fiske (1959) present the idea of triangulation when they distuss the convergent and discriminant validity of measures. Psychological Bulletin 56: 81 - … Triangulation was first applied to research by Campbell and Fiske (1959) and developed by Webb (1966), who argued that researchers should employ more than one instrument to measure variables As this implies, triangulation was first associated with quantitative research but its relevance to qualitative methods was soon explored 9. In this article, Jick seeks to offer some examples of the implementation of the concept of triangulation presented in Denzin 1970. 2. eCollection 2020 Nov. Multitrait-multimethod models in aging research. Chicago: Rand McNally.

In social work and social science publications related to family treatment, triangulation may refer to patterns of family and interpersonal interaction rather than research methods. The authors argue that validity always requires multiple methods and multiple data sources. Campbell & Fiske (1959) are forefathers of viewing triangulation as a blend of diverse methods in one single research. Data Triangulation Investigator triangulation – A free PowerPoint PPT presentation (displayed as a Flash slide show) on PowerShow.com - id: 76a2f0-ZTg3Y The explicit concept was introduced in the 1970s by Norman Denzin (1970) who built on the earlier works of Campbell and Fiske (1959) and Webb et al. eCollection 2020 Oct 14.

Drawing on the logic of triangulation, it is among the first mixed methods works. the ability to interpret the findings (Campbell & Fiske, 1959; Denzin, 1970; Polit & Hungler, 1995). In it, Creswell briefly presents three mixed methods research designs, setting the stage for his later design typology. This pioneering article describes the combined use of fieldwork methods and structured surveys in sociology. In their book about unobtrusive measures WEBB and his colleagues picked up CAMPBELL's and FISKE's idea and transferred it to a broader methodological framework (cf. In 1959, the term 'triangulation' was used in psychology by Campbell and Fiske, who intended to empirically test the results obtained by using different quantitative techniques (CAMPBELL; FISKE, 1959). It discusses the concept of triangulation, as developed in the social sciences by Campbell and Fiske (1959), with an emphasis on the process of combining and integrating multiple methods. Calls Adolescent personality: a five-factor model construct validation. This early classic work is widely cited. They introduced the concept as a synonym for convergent validity when … Triangulation 1. Tashakkori and Teddlie’s work is the foundation for mixed methods research widely used today. Pages 191. In this paper, Campbell and Fiske discuss establishing validity of measures through Denzin in 1989 identified four different types. et al. A limited form of triangulation based solely on the use of both quantitative and qualitative research approaches in a single study has become widely known as mixed methods research (see Mixed Methods Research). (Campbell & Fiske, 1959; Webb, Campbell, Schwartz, & Sechrest, 1966). Donald Campbell and Donald Fiske, in work “Convergent and discriminant validation by the multitrait-multimethod-matrix” already in 1959 attempted to ask a question, whether conclusions dealing with an accuracy of methods will stay in power if they will be confronted … Cultural Competence and Ethnic Sensitive Practice.

Wimsatt (1981) also uses the triangulation ideas LI. Multimethod designs are Campbell and Fiske (1959). My focus is on the vital issue of combining methods or methodologies.

In the social sciences, the use of triangulation can be traced back to Campbell and Fiske1 (1959) who developed the idea of "multiple operationism. Later, Denzin (1978) discusses methods of triangulation by outlining four This monograph expanded the discussion of combining quantitative and qualitative research methods, known as mixed methods research, an offshoot of the broader territory of triangulation. There, the term came from an analogy to navigation, with two separate lines of sight converging on a single point and forming the tip of a triangle. Introduced in the social sciences in the 1950s (Campbell and Fiske, 1959), then heavily criticized in the 1980s (see Silverman, 1985; Lincoln and Guba, 1985; Guba and Lincoln, 1989) and in the 1990s (Flick, 2004, 2007), triangulation is a postpositivist methodological strategy. Toward a multimodal measurement model for the neurobehavioral trait of affiliative capacity. Creswell 1994, on qualitative and quantitative methods, offers a useful typology of mixed methods research designs. More broadly, this book points to different types of data that may be triangulated usefully. In addition, it offers the most widely used typology of triangulation in the social sciences. Because each method reveals different aspects of empirical reality, multiple methods of observations must be employed” (Denzin,1978). et al. A different concern with validity was highlighted in his work on threats to inference in experimental and quasi-experimental design (Campbell & Stanley, 1963; Cook & Campbell, 1979). Mental Health Needs of Older People, Assessing the. triangulation, as developed in the social sciences by Campbell and Fiske (1959), with an emphasis on the process of combining and integrating multiple methods. Webb argued that uncertainty of interpretation decreases when a proposition is supported by two or more independent measurement processes. Denzin 1970 introduces a much more generally applicable, multidimensional conceptualization of triangulation; the author’s idea greatly expanded triangulation’s scope and possibilities. The research act: A theoretical introduction to sociological methods. Administrative Science Quarterly 24.4 (December): 602–611. doi: 10.1017/pen.2020.9. The Criteria for Convergent and Discriminant Validity in a Multitrait-Multimethod Matrix. 1966 applies Campbell and Fiske’s ideas to multiple methods of data collection, noting that oral claims could be challenged or validated via comparison and contrast with observations. Crano, William D. 1981. In terms of research methodology, triangulation in social science refers to efforts to corroborate or support the understanding of an experience, a meaning, or a process by using multiple sources or types of data, multiple methods of data collection, and/or multiple analytic or interpretive approaches.
