Research Ethics (Journal) – Most Read Articles (Updated monthly)0

Posted by Admin in on May 29, 2015
 

“Research Ethics is aimed at all readers and authors interested in ethical issues in the conduct of research, the regulation of research, the procedures and process of ethical review as well as broader ethical issues related to research such as scientific integrity and the end uses of research. The journal aims to promote, provoke, host and engage in open and public debate about research ethics on an international scale but also to contribute to the education of researchers and reviewers of research. This journal is a member of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE).”

Steven Lubet’s review of ON THE RUN: Fugitive Life in an American City (Fieldwork Encounters and Discoveries), by Alice Goffman0

Posted by Admin in on May 28, 2015
 

“Alice Goffman’s widely acclaimed On the Run: Fugitive Life in an American City has drawn more positive attention than almost any sociology book in recent years. The success of the book led to a lecture tour of at least twenty sociology departments and conferences. Her TED talk, which was often interrupted by applause, has had nearly 700,000 views. A careful reading of On the Run, however, leaves me with vexing questions about the author’s accuracy and reliability. There are just too many incidents that strike me as unlikely to have occurred as she describes them. One must try to keep an open mind about such things – especially regarding someone as obviously brilliant and dedicated as Goffman – so readers may disagree with me about the extent of her embellishments. In any event, there is a bigger problem. As I will explain below, Goffman appears to have participated in a serious felony in the course of her field work – a circumstance that seems to have escaped the notice of her teachers, her mentors, her publishers, her admirers, and even her critics.”

Values and Ethics – Guidelines for Ethical Conduct in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Research0

Posted by Admin in on May 28, 2015
 

The Values and Ethics Guidelines is an Australian national guideline for health research with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and issues. The document was intended to be a reference for researchers and ethics reviewers. The document was issued by the NHMRC. The Values and Ethics Guidelines introduces and discusses the following principles:

  • Reciprocity
  • Respect
  • Equality
  • Responsibility
  • Survival and protection
  • Spirit and integrity

Even though the document has not been enacted adherence to the Values and Ethics Guidelines is at least notionally a condition of NHMRC funding. The annual human research ethics compliance report sent to institutions by the NHMRC queries whether the Values and Ethics Guidelines were utilised. It is expected that the outcome of a review of the document will be released later in 2015.

Keeping research on track: a guide for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples about health research ethics0

Posted by Admin in on May 28, 2015
 

The Keeping research on track document is resource produced for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities and peoples about human research. It is a useful document to make accessible to potential participants and for researchers to consider when initially designing a research project. Like the Values and Ethics Guidelines (see here) it has been drafted for health research and while (for the most part) the ideas are transferable to other areas of human research it is unlikely to be helpful for humanities or creative/fine arts research.
