Ethics in Qualitative Research free pdf All researchers need to think about research ethics, and for a variety of reasons it is an increasingly important part of research methods training. Ethics in Qualitative Research explores this field and presents a distinctive perspective- one that is at odds with the assumptions underpinning ethical regulation, but also with the views of many qualitative researchers today. Hammersley and Traianou emphasize the difficult and controversial character of ethical issues, and examine the philosophical assumptions involved, the social contexts in which key ethical principles arise, and their implications for research practice. The authors argue that the starting point for any discussion of research ethics must be the values intrinsic to research, above all the commitment to knowledge-production. However, the pursuit of inquiry is rightly constrained by external values, and the book focuses on three of these: minimizing harm, respecting autonomy, and protecting privacy. These values are shown to be far from unequivocal in character, often in conflict with one another, or with the commitments of research, and always subject to situational interpretation and practical judgment. It is argued that in the present challenging times it is essential that qualitative researchers think clearly about, and stand up for, their principles.

About Anna Traianou

Martyn Hammersley is Professor of Educational and Social Research at The Open University. He has carried out research in the sociology of education and the sociology of the media. However, much of his work has been concerne1000d with the methodological issues surrounding social enquiry. He has written several books, including: Reading Ethnographic Research (Longman 1991)- What's Wrong with Ethnography? (Routledge 1992)- The Politics of Social Research (Sage 1995)- Taking Sides in Social Research (Routledge, 1999)- Educational Research, Policymaking and Practice (Paul Chapman, 2002), Questioning Qualitative Inquiry (Sage 2008), Methodology, Who Needs It? (Sage, 2011), and What is Qualitative Research? (Continuum/Bloomsbury, 2013) Anna Traianou is Senior Lecturer in the Department of Educational Studies, Goldsmiths, University of London. She has carried out research into the nature of teacher expertise, and, in particular, the ways in which knowledge and learning are implicated in educational practice. This resulted in her book, Understanding Teacher Expertise in Primary Science: A Sociocultural Approach (SENSEpublishers, 2006). Anna has also worked on the relationship between research evidence and practical wisdom, exploring some of the problems facing any notion that effective teaching can simply be an application of the results of scientific research. She has a particular interest in qualitative research methodology and theories of science.
