Going far beyond which forms to file and which committees to impress, this collection of 37 essays address many of the sources of questions as well as appraisals of many of the recent lapses. Contributors cover the history and philosophy of social science research ethics, including research ethics in the postmodern context, feminist perspectives, critical race theory, disability theory, and transformational research, and articles on ethical regulation address government regulation, institutional review, indigenous control, and program evaluation. Research methods considered here include sociological research, experiments and quasi-experiments, ethnography, covenantal ethics, and peacemaking; those on research practice include self-evaluation, relationships between researchers and subjects, indigenous voices, partnership, and visual representation. The final two sections cover ethics within diverse cultural groups and the future of research in the ethics of social research.
