Abstract
The current research aims to introduce criteria for evaluating qualitative research in social sciences research. The qualitative research was established in light of interpretivism viewpoint which has a different view from positivism or post-positivism worldviews. Both latter viewpoints believe that social phenomena have a degree of stability and discovering the rules and correlations between variables can lead to understanding the social phenomena. Based on that view, the quality of quantitative research is carried out through validity and reliability procedures. On the other hand, qualitative research supposed that meaning is forming from participants themselves. The constructivist view can adopt new quality criteria for qualitative research. Therefore, this research attempts to shed light on the quality standards for qualitative research in a simple form to assist researchers while carrying out qualitative research in social research.
