The quantitative and qualitative methods are applied in many disciplines, from social science and management science to engineering and health science, to deal with different matters and subjects concerning Individual, Society and Organization.  Nowadays, many innovations and works are achieved on techniques applied in quantitative and qualitative research, particularly in statistics, data analysis and modelling.

To promote the scientific works on these topics, the Academy of Researchers (AOR Academy) organize as a part of his Scientific Week (AOR Scientific Week), the 3rd edition of the International  Conference of Moroccan Journal of Quantitative and Qualitative Research, on  “Quantitative and Qualitative methods for Social Research” (QQR’21), from 17th to 18th July 2021 in National School of Applied Sciecnes Kenitra, Morocco.
