Papers accepted on a rolling basis
The Field Research and Ethics in Difficult Settings website is a resource for academics and practitioners to exchange ideas and experiences about research and ethics in the field. Our network of scholars, students, and practitioners is concerned with knowledge production through methodically rigorous and ethically sound field research practices.
While others subjects are welcome, we are particularly interested in submissions on the following themes as they play out in different contexts:
We welcome contributions from diverse methodological and theoretical backgrounds. Each working paper will be open peer-reviewed by a minimum of two established experts in the relevant discipline and/or geographical region. Where necessary to protect the author’s confidentiality or to allow authors to speak openly about their experiences without endangering research assistants and participants, papers will be published anonymously.
Those interested in submitting a paper should send a 250-word abstract outlining their proposed contribution and a one page CV that states their contact details and affiliation to Susan Thomson.
