Summary Theoretically rich and stimulating, Critical Issues in Qualitative Research Methods targets matters inherent in qualitative research. It addresses some of the lesser-known or explicated qualitative research methods (such as ethology), the essential concepts of rigor and evaluation, dilemmas in data collection, and issues of scientific misconduct. The various schools of phenomenology and their major characteristics of excellence are described. In addition, ethical issues and concerns of scientific integrity are raised: Which set of ethics should a researcher use? Should one divulge their research purposes? Are there potential risks to informants? Each chapter in this volume deals with a matter that has not yet been resolved or addressed in existing literature. The chapters begin with a joint dialogue in which the contributors raise questions and comment upon the concept presented, thus giving a sense of the ongoing controversy these opinions engender. Critical Issues in Qualitative Research Methods is important reading for advanced students and researchers in all disciplines, especially nursing and allied health
