View all copies of this ISBN edition:

This book examines the theoretical and practical aspects of ethical dilemmas in qualitative research.

To many researchers, `ethics' has been associated with following ethical guidelines and gaining ethics approval from academic bodies. However, the complexities of researching private lives and placing accounts in the public arena increasingly raise ethical issues which are not easily solved by rules and guidelines. This book addresses the gap between research practice and ethical principles that inform it, focusing on responsibility and accountability in applied feminist research practice.

The book explores ethical issues in research from a range of angles, including:

- Access and informed consent

- Negotiating participation

- Rapport

- The intentions of feminist research

- Epistemology and data analysis

- Tensions between being a professional researcher and a `caring' professional

The book includes practical guidelines to aid ethical decision-making rooted in feminist ethics of care.

Ethics in Qualitative Research is designed for academics, professionals and students carrying out research, and is a timely teaching text for ethics in research across the social sciences.

About the Author:

As an academic manager I am committed to enhance academic practice for Associate Lecturers. A core component of my current role is to provide staff development opportunities to extend teaching and learning scholarship . I also support the delivery of health and social care courses and evidence the teaching and learning needs that arise from practice focussed and practice based courses. I currently chair K221: 'Perspectives on Complementary and Alternative Medicine', a role that reflects my long term research interest in health and wellbeing beyond formal understandings and health care practices. I have several publication in research methodology and in 2011 a second edition of 'Ethics in Qualitative Research.' Mauthner, Birch, Miller and Jessop (2002) is due. I have developed teaching and learning across many health and social care areas and my discipline areas are underpined primairly with a sociological apporach. I previously worked on course production for mental health and mental health practice. Here I completed substantial lead author and editing roles that progress service user involvement, professional practice and raise the OU profile with other agencies and professional services.


'The problems described in this book would certainly be extremely interesting to researchers who are about to investigate highly sensitive areas such as abused women, children etc - From this perspective it is a valuable tool for feminist researchers ... their detailed discussion of potentially problematic situations contributes to the debate about ethical issues in feminist research' - Nursing Ethics
