Research Ethics : Context and Practice, Hardback Book

Research Ethics : Context and Practice Hardback

Edited by Julie Scott-Jones

Part of the Fundamentals of Applied Research series


This six-volume collection explores both the contextual and the practical sides of research ethics.

The focus of the three volumes on Context is unequivocally cross-disciplinary, containing landmark papers which explore ethics issues in context across all research that involves human subjects, taking a look at aspects such as consent, sensitivity, protection from harm, and data protection. The three volumes on Practice look at the distinction between design and implementation, exploring how in the `field', ethical issues can change and new issues can emerge. What are and are not ethical issues, and the contested and evolving nature of ethics, are a couple of key aspects considered in the literature in these volumes, and particularly in relation to the different ethical strategies utilised by researchers. As a single resource, this Major Work provides unparalleled coverage of the most significant literature to emerge from this field of study over the past few decades.

The papers selected to appear in the volumes are contextualised by introductory passages written by the editor, exploring the rationale behind the selection, the key themes and issues. Part I: ContextVolume One: Historical ContextVolume Two: Classic Cases ReduxVolume Three: Core Concepts Part II: PracticeVolume One: Power, Politics and ReflexivityVolume Two: Covert Research Volume Three: Contemporary Issues and Challenges
