Discussions of reflexivity tend to ignore issues of practice, and those addressing practice are likely to presume a sole researcher. In this paper, we respond to the need for attention to reflexive practice in qualitative research teams. Drawing on our experience of working ‘separately together’, we identify reflexivity as an embedded feature of team-based research. We discuss how reflexivity can be used as a collective interpretive resource in the construc- tion of the research subject/object, and we highlight reflexive possibilities unique to team- based research. We include in the article a presentation of the orientations and research practices that supported our reflexive teamwork.
