Ethical Choices in Research: Managing Data, Writing Reports, and Publishing Results in the Social Sciences


In this informative and straightforward guide, author Harris Cooper goes beyond the proper treatment of human research subjects to examine frequently neglected ethical issues that arise after the subjects have left. He teaches students and researchers how to avoid these issues through careful planning that begins in the very early stages of a project's inception. Readers will learn about important ethical considerations related to: collecting, managing, and interpreting study data; assigning research responsibilities and authorships to team members; preparing and publishing research reports; and interacting with the media and the scientific community after publication.
