Summary In interpretive research, the use of conversations, narratives and stories from 'the field' often provide the basis for researchers' representations. Interviews are frequently seen as an important information source in such research. Some academic authorities have thrown doubt on the reliability of data gained from interviews (Alvesson, 2003, 2010; Silverman, 2011). We argue here that researchers need to be more cognizant of the limitations and constraints of their theoretical, methodological and philosophical frameworks when conducting interpretive research.
