Abstract

Story completion (SC) involves a researcher writing a story ‘stem’ or ‘cue’ – or more simply put, the start of a story, usually an opening sentence or two – and asking the participants to complete or continue the story. Most forms of qualitative data collection involve the gathering of direct self-reports, so SC offers the qualitative research a radically different approach to data collection, and one that we think holds much potential.
