Of the four alternative criteria used to evaluate qualitative research, I chose credibility and transferability. In order for a research to be considered credible, it must first be trustworthy, with factual findings that includes, appropriate and believable results. Credibility is the most important of the criterias to identify quality qualitative research because, it questions the validity of the research findings with reality as well as demonstrates the truth to the research study (Cope, 2014).
The second criteria I chose is transferability. This is also an important aspect in identifying if a study can be used as a reliable source. Are you able to apply the research to your patients? Can the research be used in another area and population, and not just anything similar to what’s in the research. Within the “Transferability” criteria, the research must provide clear descriptions of their participants, as well as the setting of the research and the experiences (Korstjens & Moser, n.d.). A good example of these vivid descriptions can be photographs.
Both of these criterias tie into epistemological and ontological assumptions because it requires reliable sources and factual evidence for a research to be valid (Seale, 2007). Within the criminal justice field, nothing is more important than the truth in order for the system to work harmoniously with justice. From the the lawyers who search for justice to the police officers and the correctional system, having reliable sources and factual evidence, plays a significant role is deciding fates of criminals and upholding laws (Seale, 2007).
I think the main ethical issues that often tie into qualitative researches are ensuring that the participants identity are not thoroughly exposed, and that the researcher must try to keep the participants as anonymous as they can, so there is not much intrusion into their lives. A research topic must be able to be amendable to scientific study to ensure that all data are current, and that it is agreeable with the times as well as the research design (Seale, 2007). The topic must be able to represent real life activity and bottom line factual data.
