Wilson, Elena; Kenny, Amanda; Dickson-Swift, Virginia – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2018
Community-Based Participatory Research (CBPR) has been proposed as an equitable, empowering partnership approach to collaborative research.

Thomas-Hughes, Helen – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2018
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…

Involvement of children in research processes requires various ethical considerations.

This article suggests a possible way of mitigating potential risks, drawing on the idea and…

Dawson, Matt; McDonnell, Liz; Scott, Susie – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2017
This short piece considers how participant recruitment can have ethical elements. With reference to a qualitative research project on asexuality we explore the challenges associated with recruiting from an emerging, and politically charged, identity group. In our attempt to broaden the representation of asexual stories we sought to recruit people…

Mietola, Reetta; Miettinen, Sonja; Vehmas, Simo – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2017
This paper discusses possibilities of designing ethical research practice in relation to people with profound intellectual and multiple disabilities (PIMD). We will argue that in the case of this group of people, research ethics is about ethically justifiable research aims, design, methods, and practices that are based on the recognition of their…

Pickering, Lucy; Kara, Helen – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2017
The ethics of research representation are rarely discussed. Yet representation can have a significant impact on research participants and audiences.

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…

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.…
