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.”

Genetic research in indigenous health: significant progress, substantial challenges (Paper: Wendy Hoy 2012)0

PAPER: Hoy, W. E. (2012). Genetic research in indigenous health: significant progress, substantial challenges. Medical Journal of Australia, 197(7), 382-383.

ABSTRACT:
Of all the measurements and biological samples used in health research, it is the extraction and analysis of genetic material that has caused the most controversy in indigenous health research across the globe. No other kind of research has a specific inter- national non-governmental organisation dedicated to opposing it — the Indigenous People’s Council on Biocolonialism. This United States-based organisation was founded in 1999 in the wake of the Human Genome Diversity Project (HGDP). That project was a worldwide effort to collect DNA samples from indigenous populations for population genetic research that aimed to understand the ancient migration of Homo sapiens out of Africa beginning 100 000 years ago, and populating the rest of the world.
