Human rights and social justice have been, and continue to be, central considerations in qualitative inquiry. This is reflected, for example, in the emphasis that the writing and reporting of qualitative research gives to concepts such as transformation, emancipation, and giving voice to the underserved or marginalized. The fact that qualitative research has as one of its central mantras a commitment to, and focus on, human rights and social justice is not surprising given the overt focus of qualitative inquiry on the social world. As qualitative researchers, people can relate to issues emanating from a focus on, and questioning about, the dynamic relationship between research and practice. Qualitative researchers argues that they use iterative, reflexive, responsive, inductive, and emergent research designs the antithesis in many ways of a linear research process and a linear way of thinking about knowledge transfer from research to practice.
