Trustworthiness and Ethics in Research: Using Reflexivity to See the Self in Ethical Research

G. Blue Brazelton, Ijeoma Ononuju

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


In this chapter, the authors describe how to use the design and application of a rubric toward a conversation critically reflecting on one’s own self in the research process. The students will design and approve by consensus the rubric. By developing and using a rubric to evaluate their own reflexivity statements, students can identify, express, and ideally understand who they are in their research and how their lived experiences influence the way they make meaning of literature, data, and their own interpretations and conclusions. As all research and researchers face additional scrutiny in the age of misinformation, the authors believe that encouraging meaningful research reflexivity during coursework may help students learn about and commit to using transparency and reflexivity toward trustworthy and ethical scholarship.
