Research ethics in qualitative research starts with the presumption that the research process is the collaboration between researcher, participants, and context. At the same time, the researcher recognizes that she or he retains power over the data collection process, and the analysis and presentation of results.
As a qualitative researcher, consider how you might accomplish your research objectives and biases with the feelings and privacy of your participants and sources.
For this Discussion, you will explore the ethical challenges you will encounter as a qualitative researcher.
