Additional Book Details

Discuss and learn about the ethical choices faced in academic research in the social sciences

This book provides a basis for class discussion about the responsible conduct of social science research. These 16 brief research ethics cases describe situations in which ethical dilemmas arise and present students with the opportunity to think through the different implications for researchers. The cases emphasize different types of ethical dilemmas involving faculty, students, participants, and stakeholders. Included are the original cases, complete with learning objectives, teaching notes, and questions for discussion.

"…the cases presented are exceptionally well thought-out and presented at an appropriate level
for graduate students." -T. Gregory Barrett, University of Arkansas

"This book fills a gap in the literature…The broad range of topics covers many issues of concern to all social scientists." - Sue Ann Taylor, American University
