Call for Papers

Reflexivity in Qualitative Social Science Research

Submission deadline: 15 March 2018

Critical approaches to qualitative research in social sciences mandate researcher reflexivity with respect to researchers’ biases, values, and experiences. Researchers’ self-awareness of their social, cultural, and political location(s) vis-à-vis research relationships and practices is a crucial element of the research process that helps enhance trustworthiness. It is also important for researchers to acknowledge and address the inherent asymmetry of power between themselves and the research participants.
