Overstepping the Mark: Ethics Procedures, Risky Research and Education Researchers
Scott, Catherine Lomas; Fonseca, Lariane
International Journal of Research & Method in Education, v33 n3 p287-300 Nov 2010
The authors reflect on the nature and experience of the process of ethics approval applied to educational research in Australia. Drawing on examples, dysfunctional aspects are identified, which impact most powerfully on particular individuals and groups. Possible explanations for the current situation are discussed, and an argument is made for a fundamental revision to a system which is unfit for the purpose. (Contains 6 notes.)
