The covert role and the overt role were the two research roles that Adler used in this field research study. The covert role allowed Adler and her husband to interact with people who would otherwise have refused to speak to them; the nature of their research had to be disguised from lay outsiders and academicians. This role offered the advantage of gaining access to unapproachable people while avoiding researcher effects, but it prevented them from asking necessary, probing questions and from recording conversations. The overt role was used when Adler felt like new people trusted her; some people were informed that Adler and her husband were involved in a study of dealing and smuggling. A concern that Adler had was related to the reliability of data; all conclusions on independent sources and accounts were carefully verified because there is a hidden and conflictual nature of the drug-dealing world.
