Plowman, Lydia – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2017
Prompted by discovering a paper written in 1980 which described a process of 'ethnography by proxy', I revisit this concept in the light of two research projects: a workplace study of an electronics company conducted in the early 1990s and a later home-based study of young children's encounters with toys and technology. The paper defines…

Behr, Dorothée – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2017
Back translation--the 're-translation' of a translated questionnaire back into the original language and the subsequent comparison of the original version and the back translation--is a controversial assessment method for questionnaire translations. Recently, cross-cultural survey methodologists have followed the call for more empirical research…

When undertaking quantitative hypothesis testing, social researchers need to decide whether the data with which they are working is suitable for parametric analyses to be used. When considering the relevant assumptions they can examine graphs and summary statistics but the decision making process is subjective and must also take into account the…

The ethics of research representation are rarely discussed. Yet representation can have a significant impact on research participants and audiences. This paper draws on some of the limited body of accounts of ethical challenges experienced in representing others in qualitative research. These accounts make clear that researchers often have to…

Andrews, Paul – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2017
This paper discusses the 'telling case' and the manner and extent of its use in social research. The 'telling case,' proposed by Mitchell as a counter to prevailing expectations of typicality, is an ethnographic case study, derived from analytic induction and focused on the exposure of new theoretical insights. By means of an evaluation of the…

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…
