AbstractA researcher who has spent years gaining the trust of the community in which she performs research is asked by another sociologist to share her field notes. She is unwilling to share the data, and is worried that this other researcher will not have the context with which to make sense of them, and may misrepresent both her research and the lives of her research subjects. How should she proceed with making a decision about whether or not to comply with this request?
