Greenberg, Gary – Journal of Ethnographic & Qualitative Research, 2011
In an era of global networks, researchers using qualitative methods must consider the impact of any software they use on the sharing of data and findings.

Watras, Joseph – Journal of Ethnographic & Qualitative Research, 2010
This essay about the work of a famous anthropologist is an attempt to illuminate one way that researchers could apply their findings about the behavior of people in particular groups to ethical considerations of social relations. I argue that Gregory Bateson (1904-1980) is a good example because he applied a few seminal ideas to a wide range of…

Koro-Ljungberg, Mirka; Hayes, Sharon – Journal of Ethnographic & Qualitative Research, 2010
In this conceptual paper, we discuss how carefully developed research questions may support qualitative researchers by providing boundaries for their study designs. These boundaries could indicate a researcher's epistemological and theoretical connections and support his or her research choices. Although these boundaries are permeable and in flux,…

Adhering to…

Chenail, Ronald J.; Cooper, Robin; Desir, Charlene – Journal of Ethnographic & Qualitative Research, 2010
Reviewing literature in qualitative research can be challenging in terms of why, when, where, and how we should access third-party sources in our work, especially for novice qualitative researchers. As a pragmatic solution, we suggest qualitative researchers utilize research literature in four functional ways: (a) define the phenomenon in…

Korn, Karen Abney; Watras, Joseph – Journal of Ethnographic & Qualitative Research, 2009
To illustrate how theoretical studies should blend with empirical research, this article describes how scholars changed the ways they thought about schools and poverty. It begins with a historical review of the perspective of educational theorists and public policy prior to the 1970s. Taking a Marxist perspective, Bowles and Gintis (1976)…

Watras, Joseph – Journal of Ethnographic & Qualitative Research, 2009
The keynote address on which this article is based considers four stages or types of studies that qualitative researchers undertake in the field of education. The reason that I explored this focus was to illustrate the benefits and the dangers of designing studies to serve policy makers. The research that I selected sought to uncover information…
