QuiViRR: Qualitative Video Research Reports (pronounced 'quiver') is a hybrid academic journal that supports both blind peer review and non-peer reviewed content. Its broad thematic focus is qualitative research methods in the humanities and social sciences that are centrally and substantively video-based.

The main areas that the journal covers include:

  • Using audio-visual technology for research purposes;
  • Conducting and transforming video-based qualitative research;
  • Supporting video-based qualitative research methods with software and hardware solutions;
  • Documenting and investigating sociotechnical practices of research with video and audio;
  • Appropriating and developing new technologies to extend video-based qualitative research in new directions, e.g. immersive XR, spatial audio or drone video;
  • Critically documenting and reflecting on the practices and workflow of video methods, from data collection to dissemination of results;
  • Exploring interventions in social, political and cultural contexts in and through video-based qualitative research.

The first pilot volume of QuiViRR contains articles published at the end of 2020 when the journal was launched. Since this is a pilot volume, the first three articles published illustrate the Experimental Article, Software article and Data article types.
