MethodsX: Fieldwork

(On all things observable)

This stream is a home for researchers considering the practice, methods, ethics, and politics of using fieldwork to gather research data. Covering fieldwork that is quantitative and based on external observations or in-field structured interviews, through to long-term immersive ethnographic methods such as participant observation, this stream will enable you to debate different fieldwork approaches, dynamics, and dilemmas arising from many different disciplines. Fieldwork can be mentally or physically challenging and exhilarating in equal measure, as well as throwing up dilemmas that even the best methods textbooks cannot predict or provide solutions to.
