“Academics are increasingly carrying out their research online, using tools that allow them to reach more people more efficiently than before.

BOOK: Israel, Mark. & Hay, Iain M.  (2006).  Research ethics for social scientists : between ethical conduct and regulatory compliance.  London :  Sage Publications

ABOUT
“Ethics is becoming an increasingly prominent issue for all researchers across the western world. This comprehensive and accessible guide introduces students to the field and encourages knowledge of research ethics in practice. Research Ethics for Social Scientists sets out to do four things: The first is to demonstrate the practical value of thinking seriously and systematically about what constitutes ethical conduct in social science research. Second, the text identifies how and why current regulatory regimes have emerged. Third, it seeks to reveal those practices that have contributed to the adversarial relationships between researchers and regulators. Finally, the book hopes to encourage both parties to develop shared solutions to ethical and regulatory problems.”
