Abstract: The academic rigour of autoethnographic studies should be established and safeguarded to enhance the credibility and value of this form of research. This paper appraises the views of published autoethnographers on the rigour, validity and scientific accountability of such research. These insights are supplemented by the views of a sample of established autoethnographers determined through a qualitative survey. The criteria used to ensure trustworthiness in autoethnographic research must be judiciously determined and applied. From the research findings, criteria to establish rigour in autoethnographic research are proposed.
Keywords: autoethnographic research, research rigour, trustworthiness criteria, research credibility, research validity
