Introducing an exciting new feature of the journal Qualitative Research in Organizations and Management (QROM). Over the next few months, we plan to make groups of published papers freely available, in categories such as 'Classic' (e.g., highly downloaded) and 'Themed' (e.g., sensemaking). 

The selected papers reflect significant contributions to critical approaches to qualitative research methods, including ethnography, postmodernity, gender studies, methods of the self, etc. We encourage readers to see these collections as inspiration for future research, and we encourage you all to submit to QROM. 

The below papers are part of our Classic Collection and are free to access until the end of September 2023.
