About the Author

Birch, Maxine: - As an academic manager I am committed to enhance academic practice for Associate Lecturers. A core component of my current role is to provide staff development opportunities to extend teaching and learning scholarship . I also support the delivery of health and social care courses and evidence the teaching and learning needs that arise from practice focussed and practice based courses. I currently chair K221: ′Perspectives on Complementary and Alternative Medicine′, a role that reflects my long term research interest in health and wellbeing beyond formal understandings and health care practices. I have several publication in research methodology and in 2011 a second edition of ′Ethics in Qualitative Research.′ Mauthner, Birch, Miller and Jessop (2002) is due. I have developed teaching and learning across many health and social care areas and my discipline areas are underpined primairly with a sociological apporach. I previously worked on course production for mental health and mental health practice. Here I completed substantial lead author and editing roles that progress service user involvement, professional practice and raise the OU profile with other agencies and professional services.
Praise for this book
This book provides insight into ethical issues and provides researchers with a mirror to reflect on their own practices . Thus it makes a relevant contribution to the debate on ethics in qualitative research and hereby provides a number of relevant, critical reflections on the trends of digitization and standardization and the formalization of ethical standards. I would therefore especially recommend the book to qualitative researchers ( interviewers ).

--Stefan Verweij (11/13/2013 12:00:00 AM)
This book is thought-provoking and challenges approaches to research that simply see a priori ethical consideration and approval. It is an important read for any ethically-minded serious qualitative and or quantitative researcher.
