Pritchard, Erin – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2019

Powell, Mary Ann; McArthur, Morag; Chalmers, Jenny; Graham, Anne; Moore, Tim; Spriggs, Merle; Taplin, Stephanie – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2018
While there is broad consensus that involving children in research is critically important for understanding their lives, there is considerable caution around their participation in social research on 'sensitive' issues. Such caution is further amplified by a lack of agreement about what constitutes a 'sensitive topic'. This article draws on data…

Co-producing research is complex and messy. This paper draws on Tina Cook's argument for the systematic inclusion of 'mess' in research accounts as a conceptual framework through which to articulate areas of ethical mess from within a co-produced research project. Through narrating the 'messy' ethical complications the paper illustrates a number…

This paper discusses possibilities of designing ethical research practice in relation to people with profound intellectual and multiple disabilities (PIMD).

Fletcher, Gillian – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2017
When I began to undertake qualitative PhD research in Myanmar, I found myself caught between the demands of an ethics approval process that required researcher certainty about 'risk', and the reality of a research site where I would be able at best to part-glimpse the risks people faced. I found space to work through holding to the process of…
