Resourcing reflective practice

We believe that the most effective approach to research ethics, the best way to mitigate institutional risk and safeguard the welfare and rights of participants, is to focus on the research culture of an institution and to resource the reflective practice of the institution's researchers.

    Some research projects can require the involvement of 20 or more people, and that’s without the research team, actual participants, the regulators or those involved with the research outputs. And then there are the friendly consultants (like AHRECS!) on hand to advise and assist to make the process as collegiate, effective and efficient as possible.

    Focussing on the large and famous scandals/egregious misconduct can have a number of problems, not least that it’s of limited utility outside of the health sciences and psychology, but more importantly, it has the implicit message that participants need to be protected from researchers. The same problem can often be present in professional development for research ethics committee members and researchers. Instead, we need to focus our attention on facilitating excellent research and research ethics review as a more collegiate exchange.

    Even though this item is very short, we decided to include it in the Resource Library because we agree with the deceptively simple insight that there is value in changing our language/implicit characterisation of researchers when there is a problem with the veracity of a claim in a research output. The rationale for the change in language/thinking is very similar to the suggestion we use the term ‘illegitimate publishers’ rather than ‘predatory publishers’.

    We were so impressed by this discussion and the importance of the central point that we have invited Richard to write a guest post for a future edition of the Research Ethics Monthly (we hope to be able to include it in the May 2018 edition).
