Mixed-methods research is gaining increasing attention in management science research. Researchers call it “the third movement of methodology” or declare that “the age of mixed methods has come”. In 2007, the Journal of Mixed Methods Research focusing on mixed-methods research was officially launched. In terms of the application of methods, many journals in the field of social sciences (e.g., Pacific Accounting Review, International Journal of Qualitative Methods, European Journal of Information Systems, European Journal of Management and Business Economic) have been soliciting contributions about mixed-methods research, and more and more researchers adopt non-single methodologies in their researches. In the field of organizational management science, previous literature has explored the cultural differences between enterprises, economic development of enterprises, organizational conflict and cooperation, financial operation of enterprises, human resources and sustainable development, as well as employees’ satisfaction with the job. However, in most studies at different enterprise levels, only one measurement method, including survey method, interview method, literature review method, secondary data collection method, panel data method, and neuroscience experiments, was used. While in today’s world, a modern society with a complex ecosystem network, using only one method to explain the management and behavior of enterprises or consumers is still limited. Especially in wider business research, mixed-methods research has been fully applied in the exploration of customer decision-making and behaviors. It has also become a new research approach in recent years for a better understanding and explanation of the cognition and behavior compared to traditional research methods.

In light of this, the purpose of this Research Topic is to promote the use of mixed-methods research techniques for research in organizational management and behavior. The call for papers will define mixed-methods research in a more extensive manner and encourage authors to apply mixed-methods research to organizational studies of all levels, ranging from decision making behaviors on organizational management, decision-making analyses of consumer behaviors, to employees’ behaviors. Original research, reviews, policy, practice reviews, methods, hypotheses and theories, perspectives, opinions, and conceptual analyses are welcome. Authors are encouraged to submit manuscripts in, but not limited to, the following topics:

• Application of mixed-methods research to the analyses of employee behavior in enterprises
• Application of mixed-methods research to financial management and analyses
• Application of mixed-methods research to human resources management and employee knowledge sharing
• Application of mixed-methods research to the adoption of enterprise information systems
• Application of mixed-methods research to the digital economy
• Application of mixed-methods research to the technical innovation of enterprises
• Application of mixed-methods research to the performance appraisal of enterprises
• Application of mixed-methods research to the business model analyses of transnational enterprises
• Application of mixed-methods research to higher education research
• Application of mixed-methods research to enterprise risk management
• Application of mixed-methods research to enterprise decision-making analyses
