Malaysian and American Students' Perceptions of Research Ethics
Bowman, Laura L.; Anthonysamy, Angela
College Student Journal, v40 n1 p11-24 Mar 2006
Differences in perceptions of research ethics between Malaysian and American students were assessed using a questionnaire that measured perceptions of voluntary informed consent for adults and children, assessment of the risk/benefit ratio, issues of deception, and issues of privacy and confidentiality. As predicted, Malaysian students had less conservative attitudes than American students. This difference may be a result of the role the individual plays in each society or behavioral research history of each country. Demographic characteristics such as research experience with humans and research ethics exposure, as well as response acquiescence also may have influenced the outcome. (Contains 2 tables.)
