Although qualitative research is occasionally considered as preliminary research (Ka- nanen 2013, 32), it is also commonly used to reach better understanding of issues which have remained unclear in previous studies (Eriksson & Kovalainen 2008, 5). By the above mentioned factors the author decided that the best way to implement this study was by conducting exploratory research by using qualitative methodology.
3.3 Research ethics
Although previously research ethics have been focused on mainly in biological and medical researches, nowadays consideration of research ethics is essential in any kind of research. Regarding qualitative research, there are two commonly known scopes of research ethics. Procedural ethics includes asking for permission for the re- search from a certain committee, explaining the research methodology, purposes and possible outcomes. The second scope includes all possible ethical issues arising during the research. This dimension is known as ethics in practice, and it most com- monly assesses confidentiality. (Guillemin & Gillam 2004, 262-266.)
Situations in which it is not possible to define one ‘correct’ action to take, are re- ferred as ethical dilemmas in research. In these cases, the researchers usually prefer the action that seems ‘more right’ than the other actions from the ethical viewpoint. In qualitative research, ethics play a significant role especially in determining how much the researcher participates and observes others, and how anonymity and con- fidentiality is handled. (De Laine 2000, 3, 16.)
In this research, ethical principles were considered by informing all the possible par- ticipants of the subject and purpose of the interviews in advance. From this group, all volunteers were gathered, and of which the participants were chosen by random sampling. Since every participant agreed to participate in the interview and answer the questions voluntarily, the authors main obligation was to take care of the ano- nymity of the participants. Thus, the interview data is reported anonymously. Even though comparison between the answers of different nationalities might have pro- vided interesting data, it would have risked the participants’ anonymity at a research of this small scale and known origin. In addition, the author followed assigned stand- ards in the literature review throughout the study.
