AnotationThe main goal of the project is to understand the experiences of researchers with hidden research and, based on this, to describe the attitude of researchers in social work to research transparency and to find out how it affects their research practice. We start here from critical theory, which emphasizes that the actors of the social world actively construct reality through their actions, but at the same time, their actions are largely limited by the external influence of existing power discourses. The objective will be achieved through mixed research, using semi-structured in-depth interview and questionnaire techniques. Research outputs can contribute to deepening the professional debate regarding the ethical dimension of covert research and deepening knowledge about covert research and its applicability in research in social work.
