Integrating Research Ethics with Graduate Education in Geography
Gannon, William L.
Journal of Geography in Higher Education, v38 n4 p481-499 2014
Geography has promoted responsibility in science for decades. However, a monster is on the loose of our own creation and is wreaking havoc. Geocoded/locational data have enormous research potential. However, expectations of privacy and confidentiality norms flux and turn gray. Does graduate training sufficiently prepare students to respond to ethical dilemma? "Best practices" exist but US federal agencies recently have gone farther to require responsible conduct of research (RCR) education. RCR content is important for immersing students using effective pedagogies that provide graduate students tools to uphold professional responsibilities and change culture--and perhaps to understand the monster that now roams.
