Ethics, Professional Expectations, and Graduate Education: Advancing Research in Kinesiology
DePauw, Karen P.
Quest, v61 n1 52-58 Feb 2009
The university is a social institution and as such has a social responsibility to advance knowledge through research that is ultimately meaningful and beneficial to society. As we seek to advance research and graduate education in kinesiology, we must accept ethical standards and professional expectations not only as an institutional value but as an individual value. It is important that we understand current ethical dilemmas, examine underlying factors that might contribute to scientific misconduct and professional misbehavior, and develop professional preparation programs that promote academic and scholarly integrity. Through graduate education in kinesiology, we can provide training in the responsible conduct of research and ethical pursuits so that our graduates can become ethically responsible leaders and scholars.
