There is no standardised approach to developing a middle-range theory, and researchers don’t often provide sufficient detail on the methods used to develop them. This means there is a lack of transparency and guidance for others who are developing such theories. In this methods snapshot, we describe the approach we used to develop a middle-range theory called the Theory of Systems Change.
