about this item
The focus of this Major Work is unequivocally cross-disciplinary: the three-volume collection contains landmark papers which explore ethics issues in context across all research that involves human subjects, taking a look at aspects such as consent, sensitivity, protection from harm, and data protection. Crucially, a cross-disciplinary approach enables scholars to learn from the best (and worst) practice of others, and helps to cultivate understanding of how many of today’s ethical codes of practice emerged in response to the unethical practice of individuals within a range of disciplines. The literature is arranged thematically by volume, introduced by the editor’s introduction which provides the context and rationale behind the selection of papers.
Volume One: Historical Context
Volume Two: Classic Cases Redux
Volume Three: Core concepts
