Burningham, Kate; Venn, Susan; Hayward, Bronwyn; Nissen, Sylvia; Aoyagi, Midori; Hasan, Mohammad Mehedi; Jackson, Tim; Jha, Vimlendu; Mattar, Helio; Schudel, Ingrid; Yoshida, Aya – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2020
Existing literatures have discussed both ethical issues in visual research with young people, and the problems associated with applying 'universal' ethical guidelines across varied cultural contexts. There has been little consideration, however, of specific issues raised in projects where visual research is being conducted with young people…

Scott, Nicholas A. – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2020
This article contends that the 'go-along' contains more technical and ontological agility as a methodology for social research than is often assumed. After distinguishing the central spectrums of technical and ontological agility rooted in different research designs and philosophical orientations, I examine how researchers can nourish it while…

Björninen, Samuli; Hatavara, Mari; Mäkelä, Maria – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2020
Many sociologists have called for analytical rigor in the study of narrative while maintaining that narrative should be viewed as a form of social action. We argue that the narratological "story-discourse" distinction together with "positioning theory" provides a theoretical basis for such rigor. In narratology,…

Sools, Anneke – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2020
This article responds to the call for prospective methodologies in the social sciences by developing a narrative approach to study the imagination of personal futures. The approach encompasses an analytical framework regarding dimensions of projectivity and an elicitation method ("Letters from the Future"). Using an example letter from a…

Esin, Cigdem; Lounasmaa, Aura – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2020
This paper explores how a multimodal narrative methodology can open a creative, relational and safe space, in which refugee-storytellers negotiate their positioning within racialised power imbalances. Personal narratives that facilitate storytellers' agency have a potential to empower and elicit social change. When refugees are denied their right…

Isham, Louise; Bradbury-Jones, Caroline; Hewison, Alistair – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2019
This article surfaces issues about the often-used but widely under-reported practice of working with advisory fora. We critically reflect on our experiences working with an advisory network when co-designing a research study about a 'sensitive' subject. We discuss the following: (1) How the network evolved as a matter of ethical and pragmatic…

Walters, Glenn D. – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2019
Identifying mediators in variable chains as part of a causal mediation analysis can shed light on issues of causation, assessment, and intervention. However, coefficients and effect sizes in a causal mediation analysis are nearly always small. This can lead those less familiar with the approach to reject the results of causal mediation analysis.…

Mao, Jina; Feldman, Elana – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2019
In this paper, we explore the methodological implications of conducting qualitative interviews when researchers and participants come from different social classes. Singling out class on its own terms, rather than considering it as an auxiliary structural factor, we examine the unique challenges that arise during cross-class interviews. Such…

Jakoubek, Marek – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2019
This paper analyses the phenomenon of the death of informants. Based on his own experience with the long-term (1999-2016) research of Voyvodovo -- the only Czech village in Bulgaria, the author shows what the death of one's informants means for the research and the researcher. The author argues that any long-term fieldwork entails emotional…

Pritchard, Erin – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2019
Disability research often favours the use of disabled researchers carrying out research with disabled participants. It is believed to empower disabled people and create results that are more valid. However, little consideration has been given to the ethical implications of this type of research process, including in relation to female researcher…

Klein, Maike; Milner, Rebecca J. – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2019
The increasing popularity of Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis (IPA) in social research brings an increasing criticism about its validity, robustness and, more recently, its lack of expressive features. Recently, the novel arts-based research approach called body-mapping was recognized as enhancing social science research in creative and…

Jacobs, Thomas; Tschötschel, Robin – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2019
Quantitative text analysis tools have become increasingly popular methods for the operationalization of various types of discourse analysis. However, their application usually remains fairly simple and superficial, and fails to exploit the resources which the digital era holds for discourse analysis to their full extent. This paper discusses the…
