Although, in recent years, the use of the word "integration" in mixed methods research has increased during the present era of "emerging adulthood" (Onwuegbuzie & Hitchcock, 2019, p. 18), the overwhelming majority of mixed methods research studies continue to involve only partial integration. Such partial integration represents what Fetters and Freshwater (2015) referred to as the "1 + 1 = 3 integration formula" (p. 116).
The Routledge Handbook for Advancing Integration in Mixed Methods Research emerged as an attempt to help the field of mixed methods research to move towards full(er) integration. Inspired by the 32 chapters in this handbook, which involve 57 authors-including MMIRA-CC's Professor Loraine D. Cook and the Late Dr. Vimala Judy Kamalodeen-in our presentation, we will deconstruct further what full(er) integration means within the context of Onwuegbuzie's (2017) and Onwuegbuzie and Hitchcock's (2019, p. 18) "1 + 1 = 1 integration formula. " Our deconstruction has led us to conceptualize what we refer to as the Seven Pillars of Full(er) Integration. In our presentation, we will discuss each of these pillars and outline how each pillar represents a major avenue for attaining full(er) integration.
