Research Ethics: Cases and Materials
Robin Levin Penslar
annotated editionPublisher: Indiana University PressFormat: Paperback
The ethical conduct of research has become an area of great concern on university campuses across the nation. The cases and other materials in this book are designed to foster discussion of research ethics issues in the university classroom. The materials selected for inclusion here can speak to people in all disciplines, though the cases are drawn from biology, psychology, and history. They cover such topics as plagiarism, confidentiality, conflict of interest, fraud and misconduct, access to research materials, the obligations of mentors and teachers, the reporting of data, and the participation of human and animal subjects in research. Specific pedagogical suggestions for many of the cases are provided in the instructional notes. In addition, “Research Ethics” provides discussions of ethical theory and pedagogy. An annotated bibliography will help instructors identify resources to use as supplements to cases, assist readers who are developing courses in research ethics, and aid further research on the subject.
