  1. Subject, project or self ? Thoughts on ethical dilemmas for social and medical researchers.

    Article - En anglais

    In this paper we address an important but sadly neglected area ; namely some of the ethical issues which arise for social and medical researchers in the course of their work.

    Our concern is for a wide spectrum of researchers using the full range of social research methods from small-scale in-depth qualitative work through to large scale quantitative studies.

    The unifying factor is that they all have an element of contact and hence the potential for interaction between the researcher and the subject.

    In our experience (with the exception of some ethnographers) few if any social researchers will have had adequate training about the interactional aspects of their work.

    As a result they are unprepared for the ethical dilemmas and conflict of loyalties which they might experience.
