Remember Sociologists use a number of different methods or research designs to gather data. These include surveys, participant observation, secondary analysis, document reviews, unobtrusive measures and experiments.
Additionally, there are ethical considerations that are a fundamental concern: these include honesty, truth, openness, and protecting subjects from harm. Another concern is that social research should be value free.
And keep in mind sociologists stress replication, the repetition of a study by others to compare results. Values present a second dilemma in that research is conducted to solely analyze basic sociology or is it to reform social arrangements?
