IPSE is an innovative research protocol developed by a team of French researchers in the field of qualitative medical research (QHR). This paper attempts to inspire social science doctoral researchers outside the medical field to consider adopting this unique method in future studies. It unpacks for readers how the IPSE research protocol works and provides a compelling rationale for its adoption, given the gaping chasm between research and practice.
