Abstract: This particular kind of research brings about a series of ethical considerations that may be quite unique to this scenario. One needs to mention the dual role of employee and researcher held by the person carrying out the research. There will certainly be ethical issues that one needs to consider when carrying out research on the institution where one’s colleagues, superiors, students, administration, and support staff, etc are found as they will form part of the research itself. This may ultimately lead the researcher to face conflicting values and beliefs that may affect the objectivity of the researcher and ultimately the validity of the research process itself.
