43 CHAPTER 4 Research ethics regulation Introduction Examination of the Euro-Western research literature shows that Euro-Western scholars seem happy to treat research ethics as though it exists in isolation, separate from other forms of ethics such as individual, social, professional, institutional or political ethics. A similar examination of the Indigenous research literature suggests that many Indigenous scholars do not make such a separation. I argue that this is one of the areas where Euro-Western researchers can learn from those Indigenous researchers
57 CHAPTER 5 Evaluation research ethics Introduction Evaluation is a particular form of research that is designed to assess the value of something: perhaps a service, an intervention or a policy. Evaluation research is often discussed and written about as though it is a single unified approach. In fact there are a number of different theoretical bases for evaluation research, such as realist evaluation, utilisation-focused evaluation, feminist evaluation, empowerment evaluation and Indigenous evaluation. Yet, whatever the theoretical underpinnings, the key
Research ethics and integrity are growing in importance as academics face increasing pressure to win grants and publish, and universities promote themselves in the competitive HE market. Research Ethics in the Real World is the first book to highlight the links between research ethics and individual, social, professional, institutional, and political ethics. Drawing on Indigenous and Euro-Western research traditions, Helen Kara considers all stages of the research process, from the formulation of a research question to aftercare for participants, data and findings. She argues that knowledge of both ethical approaches is helpful for researchers working in either paradigm.
Students, academics, and research ethics experts from around the world contribute real-world perspectives on navigating and managing ethics in practice. Research Ethics in the Real World provides guidance for quantitative, qualitative, and mixed-methods researchers from all disciplines about how to act ethically throughout your research work. This book is invaluable in supporting teachers of research ethics to design and deliver effective courses.
Key messages The ODA budget cuts caused extensive harms to researchers and partners leading to reduced impacts. The GCRF case exposed inadequate research ethics and governance procedures. The cuts highlighted the shallow UK institutional commitments to equitable South–North partnerships and continued coloniality. Political intrusion and contractual violations led to a distrust of the UK government. Introduction In spring 2021 – amid the COVID-19 pandemic, which was having its own dramatic effects on international research projects – UK
Introduction This chapter provides a conceptual approach to social science research ethics emerging during the COVID-19 pandemic, examining parallel issues which arose during the crisis around morality and economics. This juxtaposition between these contradictory concepts poses a number of challenges for researchers and research ethics across all disciplines. At a time when social research is recognized as essential to overcoming and learning from the global crisis, one question faced by researchers is how to navigate their moral obligations while conducting
195 Domestic violence and research ethics ELEVEN Domestic violence and research ethics The Domestic Violence Research Group, University of Bristol Hilary Abrahams (HA), Gill Hague (GH), Ellen Malos (EM), Melanie McCarry (MM), Tais Silva (TS) and Emma Williamson (EW) Introduction The Domestic Violence Research Group (DVRG) in the School for Policy Studies at the University of Bristol – re-launched as the Violence Against Women Research Group in September 2004 – conducts national, international and local studies of domestic violence and of other forms of violence
Background My research project “Integrating indigenous principles of human research ethics: The case of two Pacific island nations” was in progress when the COVID-19 pandemic was declared in early 2020. It focuses on culturally appropriate and ethical human research in the Republic of the Fiji Islands (Fiji) and the Kingdom of Tonga (Tonga) in the South Pacific. Talanoa 4 , an informal talk between persons or among people to share stories, ideas and emotions (Vaioleti, 2016 ), which is a culturally embedded qualitative research method, was employed (Nabobo
FOUR Bureaucratic battles: liaison with Local Research Ethics Committees Any research that involved National Health Service (NHS) resources required Local Research Ethics Committee (LREC) approval but most of ALSPAC’s research had no impact on these resources. LREC approvals could have provided an extra level of protection for the Study participants but the LRECs seemed to be overwhelmed with the increasing amount of paperwork that they requested. It is well documented that their own bureaucratic processes became unethically onerous around the beginning of
