Visual displays provide readers a conceptual scaffold for understanding information. Researchers can use visual displays in mixed methods research in ways that effectively communicate key aspects of a study. This review highlights four purposes of visual displays in mixed methods research pertaining to methodological features of a study. The four purposes include showing the relationship between research questions and data collection methods, communicating a mixed methods study design procedure, demonstrating integration of methods, and demonstrating integration of findings. Examples are used to illustrate each purpose and general guidelines for the use of visual displays are provided.
