Reporting practices in multimodal viewpoint research
A methodological meta-analysis
This study assesses methodological reporting practices in multimodal viewpoint research using the 51 primary studies previously synthesized by Stec (2012). These studies were coded for the designs and reporting practices associated with the collection and analysis of multimodal data in order to facilitate a discussion on current reporting practices. Results point to several systematic strengths, as well as to several systematic weaknesses. I discuss these trends in light of methodological reviews in other fields (e.g., Plonsky, 2013) and make a number of suggestions for reforming reporting practices with an aim to increase transparency and replicability.
