What is research, and what is qualitative versus quantitative research? What is mixed methods research? Many different homework assignments ask the student to locate qualitative research or quantitative research articles. https://www.atsdr.cdc.gov/communityengagement/pce_program_methods.html The British Library has a site describing qualitative research. Also, the US PubMed Central data source has an article describing qualitative research. Mixed methods research, a combination of different types of research, can be studied at a US National Institutes of Health information source here. Different governmental entities describe and support qualitative and quantitative research, including Australia, as described in their National Health and Medical Research Council site, here. Many resources throughout the world concern themselves with ethical research conduct, including how to carefully manage individuals who are the subject of research and clinical trials (see NIH Clinical Research Trials and You). The US National Institutes of Health and also the Australian government display a National Statement on Ethical Conduct in Human Research, and the UK government has much information concerning the National Health Service Health Research Authority and more.
