This reader-friendly book examines the ethical issues and questions that occur in university and professional research and will help both beginning and experienced researchers to identify ethical issues when they are conducting research.

The book thoroughly examines the broader ethical issues that arise throughout research, from the design stage through to data collection and analysis. It also investigates topical issues such as content, confidentiality and ethical questions in the dissemination of research. There are also discussions of ethical theories as well as case studies that highlight dilemmas and how they can be avoided or resolved.

This new edition is thoroughly updated to reflect the greater emphasis researchers must now place on ethics and includes information on:

  • Ethical concerns of the internet and technology
  • Regulatory frameworks and research governance
  • Ethical requirements of funding bodies
  • The involvement of research participants in research design
  • Codes of ethics within different disciplines
'Ethical Dialogue' and 'Ethical Dilemmas' boxes feature throughout the book in order to highlight key issues.

There are also further reading sections at the end of each chapter as well as expanded coverage of plagiarism. The Student's Guide to Research Ethics is an invaluable tool for both undergraduate and postgraduate students as well as professionals who research as part of their jobs.

    Book summary:

    "This compact book is intended as a practical guide for students involved in research, and it fulfils that goal well. ...The chapter on 'The funding and sponsorship of research' is an excellent example of the author's willingness and ability to include relevant, sensitive and practical content that is often left out of texts on ethics. ...This is an easy book to read, it is concise and keeps to relevant content. ...It would make an excellent text for a course in research ethics and/or research methods, and it will also provide an excellent planning and self-review guide for a practising researcher." Higher Education Review

    "The book is aimed primarily at higher education students in education and the social sciences who are conducting a (typically small scale) research project. That is not to say that the publication is of little value to the supervisors of such projects or to experienced researchers as a resource. ...the successful integration of a wide range of theoretical perspectives on ethics in the text is... one of the main accomplishments of this publication" RTI Resource Centre
