Book review: Ethics in Qualitative Research (2nd Ed) Edited by TIna Miller, Maxine Birch, Melanie Mauther and Julie Jessop

Research output: Contribution to journalBook/Film/Article review


This book review looks at Ethics in Qualitative Research, which outlines the tensions between the often linear and mechanistic approaches of university ethics committees. It also examines the 'fluidity and inductive uncertainty' that pervade qualitative research where ethical dilemmas and concerns permeate the research process. The reviewer found that the book is intellectually challenging and most appropriate for an academic or doctoral audience, although the principles and challenges raised are relevant to all qualitative researchers. Ultimately, the book shows that ethics should permeate the entire research process and not simply be a tick-box exercise.
