    Experimenter as automaton; experimenter as human: exploring the position of the researcher in scientific research.Sarahanne M. Field & Maarten Derksen - 2021 - European Journal for Philosophy of Science 11 (1):1-21.
    The crisis of confidence in the social sciences has many corollaries which impact our research practices. One of these is a push towards maximal and mechanical objectivity in quantitative research. This stance is reinforced by major journals and academic institutions that subtly yet certainly link objectivity with integrity and rigor. The converse implication of this may be an association between subjectivity and low quality. Subjectivity is one of qualitative methodology’s best assets, however.

    People as Scientific Instruments.Maarten Derksen - 2010 - Spontaneous Generations 4 (1):21-29.

They may act as experimenter, receiving and instructing the participants; they may be a stooge, a confederate of the experimenter who is part of the experimental manipulation; they may function as raters of their own personality or that of others; or they may conduct interviews and do observations. In most social scientific research, people are necessary to elicit, record, or measure the phenomena under study. They are an essential instrument in most social (...)
