Research Article 1

The aim of this article is to present reflections on a pilot study that constitutes a phase of my PhD research. These reflections should shed light on the various issues faced, as a means of avoiding them in the main data collection. They are also intended to provide insights for other researchers. Reflection is a process that enables researchers to think about their experiences and learn from them (Kinsella, 2001). Although reflection can be difficult, as Procee (2006) emphasises, there are three important principles which should be taken into account to facilitate the process and ensure it is a meaningful one.
