Week 10
Ethics is Qualitative Research
An important aspect of any research and perhaps more so for qualitative research is
ensuring that ethical standards are closely followed. For example, think back to
your CITI Training and the importance of doing no harm and not violating human
rights. Ethical review boards such as IRBs closely examine procedures to ensure
participant protection. Ethical dilemmas can occur in qualitative research by the
very nature of the researcher-participant relationship. Ethical issues can also arise
due to the other inherent component of qualitative research and that is the
researcher’s interpretation of the data.
In addition, sensitive issues are often the focus of qualitative research, which
means that great care must be taken by the researcher to understand their
responsibilities that go beyond the researcher-participant relationship. A good
example of this is the duty to report that therapists and clinicians must adhere to
regarding their license to practice. If you are a researcher and also a clinician, and
your participant, in the course of collecting your data, shares with you that she has
abused her child, or is abusing drugs – what are your options? In this case, your
duty to report takes precedence over confidentiality in the researcher-participant
relationship you have established.
To avoid such ethical dilemmas, it is important, as part of consent, to describe your
study and be clear that certain information is excluded from confidentiality and to
identify the types of information that can become problematic.
Be sure to review this week’s resources carefully. You are expected to apply the
information from these resources when you prepare your assignments.

Spotlight on Skills: Academic Integrity
Throughout your coursework, you will be asked to review the
work of others, offer critiques, and provide your own solutions
to issues and problems related to the field. During this process,
you must be scrupulous in distinguishing between your work
and the work of others. One way of doing this is through
integrity in writing.
Northcentral University considers it a violation of Academic
Integrity to knowingly submit another person’s work and present
it as that of the student’s, without properly citing the source of
the work.

Carefully note that Northcentral University’s Academic Integrity
code requires not only that the student abstain from presenting
the work of another as his or her own work, but also that the
student properly cites the source of the work.

Northcentral University considers it the responsibility of the
student to become familiar with how to cite sources properly. All
students are required to complete the Academic Integrity
Questionnaire successfully at the beginning of their course of
studies, thus confirming their understanding of the Integrity
policy and their commitment to adhering to that policy.

Instructors are required to provide a sample of each student’s
work to the TurnItIn service, which checks each paper for
similarity to original works and papers turned in by students in
hundreds of other universities.

The student is responsible for understanding and adhering to
the Academic Integrity Policy and for avoiding all instances of
plagiarism in writing. Violations of the Northcentral University
Integrity Code are reported by the Instructor to the School and a
series of consequences follow, ranging from being required to
revise the paper within 3 days (first violation only) to grade
penalties, course failures, and dismissal from the university.
View the Northcentral Academic Integrity Tutorial, located under
your weekly resources, to refresh your knowledge of how to
achieve academic integrity.
Your task this week is to prepare a draft of your Signature
Assignment, which is a literature review that examines a topic
from a qualitative research design perspective. You submitted
your topic to your faculty for review in Week 1. Be sure your
draft follows this format:

Introduce the topic and provide a brief background.

Present a brief problem of interest.

Identify the qualitative research method that could be used to
investigate this research problem.

Review relevant literature that ensures that you address the
Describe limitations, benefits, and challenges of your chosen
qualitative research design.
Evaluate selected software analysis program to be used.
Discuss validity threats in your chosen qualitative design.
Assess potential ethical issues in your chosen qualitative design.

Conclude with a summary that synthesizes the research and
points to gaps in the literature and to directions that further
research might take.
Remember to use appropriate section headings and apply APA
format correctly to them. You also will need to support your
assignment with at least 10 references.
Your paper should demonstrate thoughtful consideration of the
ideas and concepts presented in the course by providing new
thoughts and insights relating directly to the topic. Your
response should reflect scholarly writing and current APA
standards. Be careful to adhere to North central’s Academic
Integrity Policy.
