The bi-annual publication of the APSA Section on Qualitative Methods and Multi-Method Research has a highly interesting and controversial symposium on confirmation bias in process tracing in its current issue. I have written a Twitter thread on the question of what the evidence for confirmation bias in qualitative research is. Thanks to the app Threadreader, the thread can be read conveniently read on this webpage without having to access Twitter (and it also saves me from reposting it here).
