This article explores the relationship of ethics to validity in hermeneutic phenomenological inquiry. First, the authors present a brief overview of the various discourses on validity in qualitative research that have been variously applied to hermeneutic phenomenological inquiry. Next, they examine how relational ethics is a presence to bear within this form of inquiry. Finally, they offer a set of ethical reflections to help the researcher engage in a process of ethical questioning during each step of the research process.

Cet article explore la relation de l'éthique par rapport à la validité de l'étude phénoménologique herméneutique. En premier lieu, les auteures font un bref tour d'horizon des divers discours sur la validité de la recherche qualitative appliquée de multiples façons à l'étude phénoménologique herméneutique. Elles examinent ensuite de quelle façon l'éthique relationnelle est à prendre en compte dans cette forme d'étude. Enfin, elles offrent une série de réflexions d'ordre moral pour aider les chercheurs à s'engager dans un questionnement déontologique à chaque étape du processus de recherche.

    Currently published issues of the CJNR (1969-2015) are being moved to the McGill online archives where they will be hosted in perpetuity. This migration should be completed by Spring 2016. During this transition, all issues of CJNR remain accessible to our readers as before:

    1) Past issues of CJNR from 2003 to December 2015 through ingentaconnect.

    2) Issues from 2002 to 1969 can be accessed through the CJNR digital archive.

    We understand that this is a significant change. Please be confident that all parties are working diligently to make this a seamless transition that will further advance the scope and impact of CJNR.

    Thank you.
