Action research vs. ethnography?

Can someone explain me (or point to something) differences between action research and ethnography?

My feeling that the differences should be somewhere around:

  • role of action (~action as intentional/explicit goal of action research)
  • process (cycles in action research)
  • data collection/documenting focus

    Researcher Action research in actively involved in action research to study the field of study and to increase the knowledge stack of the field of study. but in ethnography, researcher is involved to do in depth study of the field of study, but it does not try to increase the knowledge stack of field of study.
