Reflexivity: a practical guide for researchers in health and social science

Finlay, L. and Gough. B. (eds.) (2003)
Oxford, Blackwell Publishing

Reflexivity is a popular tool used to analyse personal, intersubjective and social processes which shape research projects. It enables researchers, particularly within the qualitative tradition, to acknowledge their role and the situated nature of their research. In the current climate, which sees the popularity of qualitative methods coupled with increased public and professional scrutiny of research, reflexivity provides a means of bolstering greater transparency and quality in research.

This book recognises the considerable value of reflexivity to researchers, and provides a means to navigate this field. The book is foremost a practical guide which examines reflexivity at different stages of the research process. The editors and contributors offer candid approaches to the subject, which supply readers with diverse strategies on how to do reflexivity in practice.

Features

* Provides an accessible, practical guide to reflexive research processes, methods and outcomes
* Encompasses both the health and social science fields
* Includes contributions from international researchers

The book is aimed at postgraduate and final year students of health and social sciences. Interested clinicians will also find useful insights in the text.
