This edition of “Forum” addresses the issues raised when anthropologists attempt to transform their preliminary records into an academic analysis. Participants of the “Forum” answer the following questions: What are the processes by which encounters and conversations with informants become a “written source”? Is it acceptable to edit field notes? By what processes do these “written sources” turn into the text of a publication? Is it acceptable to share one’s own field notes and interviews with other researchers? Is it possible to carry out productive research using field data gathered by others?
