Ethics as Social Practice: Introducing the Debate on Qualitative Research and Ethics

Wolff-Michael Roth

Abstract


Ethical issues have become increasingly important in research involving human beings. It is fitting, therefore, that FQS devotes a debate focusing on issues that are concerned with the many layers of decision making when it comes to ethics in qualitative research. In this contribution, I use a personal context to formally introduce the ethics debate in general and the contributions to this issue in particular. I extend an invitation to readers to contribute to this debate of ethical issues in qualitative research. URN: urn:nbn:de:0114-fqs050195
