Friday afternoon’s funny – Wrong at so many levels0

Where to begin with this cartoon? First off a wince and a pained chuckle. Fine print or other tricky tactics are never appropriate in consent material. We must always treat participants with respect and never derision. And must never EVER use a screening test to imply a potential participant must take part in our research.

Participant fear of the unknown is never a joke, but it isn’t a reason to downplay or obfuscate risk.

Integrating the Management of Personal Data Protection and Open Science with Research Ethics (Papers: David Lewis, et al | 2017)0

Abstract

This paper examines the impact of the EU General Data Protection Regulation, in the context of the requirement from many research funders to provide open access research data, on current practices in Language Technology Research. We analyse the challenges that arise and the opportunities to address many of them through the use of existing open data practices for sharing language research data. We discuss the impact of this also on current practice in academic and industrial research ethics.

Ethical Research Protocols for Social Media Health Research (Papers: Adrian Benton, et al | 2017)0

Posted by Admin in on June 18, 2017
 

Abstract
Social media have transformed datadriven research in political science, the social sciences, health, and medicine. Since health research often touches on sensitive topics that relate to ethics of treatment and patient privacy, similar ethical considerations should be acknowledged when using social media data in health research. While much has been said regarding the ethical considerations of social media research, health research leads to an additional set of concerns. We provide practical suggestions in the form of guidelines for researchers working with social media data in health research. These guidelines can inform an IRB proposal for researchers new to social media health research.
