Tolich, Martin; Choe, Louisa; Doesburg, Adam; Foster, Amy; Shaw, Rachel; Wither, David – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2017
The pedagogy of teaching research methods, let alone research ethics, is an under-researched field. In this article a sociology lecturer connects five postgraduate students in a qualitative research ethics course with two novice ethnographers' candid empirical studies. While it is common for students to read articles and books on the topic, what…

Turner, N.; Almack, K. – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2017
This article contributes to a growing literature that takes a more nuanced approach to exploring the complexities of relationships and negotiations with gatekeepers. Using our study of young people living with a parent at the end of life as a 'critical case' of sensitive qualitative research, we discuss how far from being a smooth, linear process,…

Welch, Vicki; Turner-Halliday, Fiona; Watson, Nicholas; Wilson, Philip; Fitzpatrick, Bridie; Cotmore, Richard; Minnis, Helen – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2017
Obtaining informed consent can be challenging in stressful and urgent circumstances. One example is when potential participants have recently had their child removed into care; intervention is urgent and mandatory whereas participation in associated research is voluntary. Using a nested qualitative study, we examined experiences of consent…

Vermeylen, Saskia; Clark, Gordon – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2017
Some social scientists have criticised the workings of research-ethics committees on the grounds that their biomedical model is ill-suited to some social-science research in both practical and philosophical terms. In this paper we review these criticisms and propose an alternative approach to pre-research ethical review that is based on the…

Lie, Rico; Witteveen, Loes – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2017
The notion of visual informed consent (VIC) is developed in the context of capturing on film the clarification of the purpose of data collection, the use of information obtained, and the rights, risks and benefits of participation on the one hand, and the registration of the participant's understanding of this and of given consent on the other.…

Pangrazio, Luci – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2017
This paper explores provocation as an approach towards social science research. While routinely used in natural science and arts research, this paper argues provocation might enable the social science researcher to initiate critical reflection amongst participants on issues that are often otherwise overlooked, obscured or accepted as naturalised…

It draws on research analysing the biographies and future hopes of 15- to 17-year-old girls and boys participating in targeted youth/educational programmes in the Helsinki area. The ethical challenge explored here is how to negotiate…

The use of reference groups made up of members of the population being researched has been encouraged within the qualitative research literature. This paper describes the use of reference groups made up of children and young people and promotes them as a space within which co-reflexive activities can help researchers reconsider their research…

McKeague, Lynn; O'Driscoll, Claire; Hennessy, Eilis; Heary, Caroline – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2015
In recent years, implicit measures of attitude have emerged as increasingly important methods in research with adults; however, they have been used less often in research with children or adolescents. The present article seeks to initiate wider discussion on the potential for using implicit measures with young people by providing readers with an…

Taylor, Rebecca – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2015
Anonymisation processes are an embedded, if contested, element of ethical research practice. Current debates, highlighting various challenges to anonymity, suggest the importance of situated ethics and negotiated solutions. However, the strategies adopted are necessarily mediated by the researcher's epistemological positions. Longitudinal studies…

Hammersley, Martyn – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2015
In some quarters today there are arguments to the effect that research ethics codes should be formulated in terms of principles, rather than specific prescriptions and proscriptions. This derives in part from what is probably the most influential approach to bioethics: principlism. What is provided here is an exploration of the nature of ethical…

Parr, Sadie – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2015
This paper reflects on research carried out with a group of women receiving intensive family support aimed at addressing the cause of their family's 'anti-social behaviour'. The methodological approach to the research was underpinned by the philosophical principles of critical realism. It was also informed by the ethical and political concerns of…

Mauthner, Natasha – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2015
In this article I argue that in their current genealogical and philosophical configuration, qualitative longitudinal research (QLR) practices -- and a wider regime of knowledge, ethical, moral, legal, technological, political and economic practices with which they are entangled -- embed and enact representational assumptions in which the realities…
