This book examines the theoretical and practical aspects of ethical dilemmas in qualitative research.

To many researchers, `ethics' has been associated with following ethical guidelines and gaining ethics approval from academic bodies. However, the complexities of researching private lives and placing accounts in the public arena increasingly raise ethical issues which are not easily solved by rules and guidelines. This book addresses the gap between research practice and ethical principles that inform it, focusing on responsibility and accountability in applied feminist research practice.

The book explores ethical issues in research from a range of angles, including:

- Access and informed consent

- Negotiating participation

- Rapport

- The intentions of feminist research

- Epistemology and data analysis

- Tensions between being a professional researcher and a `caring' professional

The book includes practical guidelines to aid ethical decision-making rooted in feminist ethics of care.

Ethics in Qualitative Research is designed for academics, professionals and students carrying out research, and is a timely teaching text for ethics in research across the social sciences.
