Being there: ethnographic research and autobiography
Article publication date: 1 March 2000
Qualitative research offers a unique insight into the behaviour and beliefs and meanings of the organisations, situations and people studied. Often these meanings express themselves in narrative forms. The researcher’s own experience of research itself takes a narrative form, and has similarities with autobiography. The reflexive elements of autobiography can make for more self‐aware research, above all when the researchers are researching organisations, situations and groups of which they themselves are a part.
