Questions of how to protect the interests of those w h o are ready to take part in a study or scandals referring to manipulated data have repeatedly drawn research ethics to the foreground.

It is related to the research of Malinowski (1916) in ethnography and the QUALITATIVE RESEARCH: WHY AND HOW TO DO IT 19 Chicago School in sociology. During this period, qualitative research was interested in the other—the foreign or the strange—and in its more or less objective description and interpretation. For example, foreign cultures interested ethnography and a society's outsiders interested sociology.

The debates about the "right" understanding of science are not yet settled (see Becker 1996), but in both domains a broad research practice has developed which speaks for itself, independent of the fact that there is good and bad research on both sides.
