Entanglement and the Relevance of Method in Qualitative Research

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This brief article is an introduction to the feature article on self-reflection in interpretive phenomenology research. Self-reflection is discussed as a method that warrants more explicit description in the practice of qualitative research. Research does not occur in an epistemic vacuum. Despite researchers’ entanglement in the process of research and the fuzziness of the phenomenon under study, scientific methods, including that of self-reflection, enable nurse scientists to persevere in their study of human health experiences.
