Re: An open letter to The BMJ editors on qualitative research

I must thank the authors for this open letter to The BMJ editors on qualitative research. One would have thought the BMJ will be the one promoting series aimed at educating their readers on the importance of qualitative studies. One wonders what would happen if readers stopped reading quantitative studies; how will BMJ interprete its role in promoting scholarly activity?
