ABSTRACT

This article argues that core methodological concepts of fundamental research like validity and reliability are transformed in special quality standards in applied social research. They retain much of their traditional strivings but have to realize them in quite other contexts and with quite different purposes. The conditions of their realisation do not have to become worse in the frequently unstructured field settings, as is usually thought, but can improve as well. The crucial role of the characteristic social and communicative settings for methods employed in this context is stressed. For instance, the dialogue between researchers and research subjects and sponsors obtains a special methodological significance here. Seven quality standards are distilled from the practice of applied social research and elaborated partly according to some concepts first suggested by the German action researchers Moser and Schneider. They are called ‘transparancy’, ‘consistency’, ‘communication and cooperation’, ‘stimulus function’, ‘multi-method’, ‘feed-back and confrontation’ and ‘dynamic method’. The general argument is made specific by a treatment of the consequences of these standards for the employment of interviews and questionaires. More... »
