Ethics in Psychological Research is a brief, practical guide for student researchers and their mentors to answer ethical questions and navigate issues of institutional policies and academic freedom. Authors Daniel P. Corts and Holly E. Tatum guide readers in identifying, preventing, mitigating, and resolving ethical issues in research using a unique ethical framework. Each of the standalone chapters provide real-life examples of ethical questions, a description of scholarly work on the matter, and suggestions for how to address similar problems should they arise in the researcher’s own work. The book makes for a succinct and easy-to-use reference for any student conducting research in the behavioral sciences.
“Ethics in Psychological Research is a guide to doing ethics in research that discusses integrity at every step of the process, from developing an idea and pre-registering hypotheses to determining authorship and presenting results. The focus is pragmatic, so the student is being taught direct applications of what they are learning in the course rather than a sort of lofty detached view of research methods.”
“A necessary collection of all the topics students need to understand when performing any type of research.”
“This handbook compiles several semesters of research methodology into an easy-to-follow guide.”
New researchers in Psychology need a source for understanding ethics as well as expectations of commonly followed research practices. This text offers this and so much more.
