Requirements for Education on the Protection of Human Research Subjects: Implications for Educational Researchers.
Clements, Andrea D.; Myrick, Pat W.
The recent requirement for education on the protection of human research subjects mandated by the federal government has the potential to impact research in all fields, including education, significantly. At this point, all key personnel involved in research using human subjects are either required or strongly recommended (depending on the type of institution) to be trained, tested, and certificated, verifying that they have completed education relating to the protection of research subjects from harm. A history of the requirement, clarification of when and to whom it applies, and possible implications are discussed. Because of this additional hurdle, there is the risk that research protocols will be modified to reduce the use of human subjects or be abandoned altogether. However, potential benefits of the requirement are also outlined. (Contains 20 references.) (Author/SLD)
