Questionable Methods in Alcoholism Research.
Koocher, Gerald P.
Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, v59 n2 p246-48 Apr 1991
Alcoholism research paradigms that use substantial cash incentives to attract participants and that call for alcoholics to consume ethanol in laboratory raise ethical questions. When using such methods, investigators should be obligated to discuss risk-benefit rationales and detail precautionary behaviors to protect participants. Discussion of ethical problems should be mandatory in publications resulting from such paradigms. (Author/NB)
