Prior to beginning work on this discussion forum, read the articles by Colnerud (2013), Brief Report: Ethical Problems in Research Practice, and by Maschke (2008), Human Research Protections: Time for Regulatory Reform? Then, review the Ethical Principles of Psychologists and Code of Conduct (Links to an external site.).
In your initial post, due on Day 3,
- Summarize the guidelines stipulated in Section 8 of the Ethical Principles of Psychologists and Code of Conduct for research with human participants.
- Analyze how these guidelines would apply to a study on your topic of interest or research focus.
- Review the insights you developed about ethical challenges facing researchers and explain how these ethical challenges would apply if you were to conduct a research study on your topic of interest or research focus.
- Make sure to identify your topic of interest or research focus so your classmates will better understand your perspective.
