Various theoretical, methodological, and ethical issues may emerge in cross-cultural research. For ex, theories and methods may not be equivalent in the cultures being studied, or research studies may be flawed with cultural attribution fallacies or researcher bias. According to Matsumoto and Juang (2008), "Despite the best attempts to establish equivalence in theory, hypothesis, method, and data management, cross-cultural research is often inextricably, inherently, and inevitably nonequivalent. It is the challenge of the observer to analyze research critically for these issues and deficiencies.
