Głównym tematem niniejszego artykułu, w kontekście najnowszych dyskusji w metodologii badań naukowych, jest charakterystyka podejścia badawczego, które pozwalałoby w adekwatny sposób prowadzić badania w zakresie naukoznawstwa. Trudność tkwi przede wszystkim w tym, że badania naukoznawcze obejmują zróżnicowane aspekty, które w bardziej tradycyjnym ujęciu odpowiadają konglomeratowi różnych dyscyplin, ale jednocześnie, oczekuje się – m.in. ze względu na rekomendacje na podstawie badań – że wynik będzie miał charakter spójny i jednolity. Tego rodzaju problem obserwuje się nie tylko w badaniach naukoznawczych, lecz – z uwagi na rosnącą złożoność podejść do przedmiotu badania – również w przypadku wielu dyscyplin w obrębie szeroko rozumianych badań społecznych. Artykuł zawiera przegląd zagadnień dotyczących jednej z nowszych propozycji metodologicznych rozwiązania powyżej zasygnalizowanego problemu – tzw. „metod mieszanych” – czyli podejścia stosującego w pojedynczym procesie badawczym różne metody badań w celu uzyskania spójnej i kompleksowej odpowiedzi na pytanie badawcze. Po ogólnej charakterystyce metod mieszanych oraz zarysowaniu dyskusji dotyczących ich podstaw, zaprezentowane są argumenty za oraz przeciw ich stosowaniu w badaniach, omówiona jest jedna z szerzej przyjętych typologii metod mieszanych, a także krótko przywołane są nieliczne przykłady badań naukoznawczych wykorzystujących to podejście.

The main topic of this article, within the context of the recent discussions in methodology of scientific research, is a research approach that would allow to adequately conduct science of science research. The difficulty lies primarily in the fact that the science of science research includes diverse aspects, which in more traditional terms corresponds to a conglomerate of different disciplines, but at the same time, it is expected – primarily in view of the subsequent recommendations based on the research results – that the obtained result will be integral i unified. This kind of problem does not concern the science of science research only, but – due to the increasing complexity of approaches to the subject of the study – occurs also in the case of many disciplines within the broadly defined social research. The article contains an overview of the issues relating to one of the newer methodological proposals to solve the above problem – the so-called “mixed-methods” – namely, an approach within a single research process applying different research methods in order to achieve an integral i comprehensive answer to the research question. After the general characteristics of mixed-methods, i outlining the discussions on their underlying paradigms, the arguments for i against their use are presented, i next – one of the more widely accepted typology of mixed-methods is discussed. The paper concludes with an overview of a few examples of science of science research using the mixed-methods approach.
