Extensively revised and updated to serve today's needs for insight and solutions to the most vexing ethical and regulatory problems faced by researchers today, Planning Ethically Responsible Research, Second Edition guides readers through one of the most important aspects of their social or behavioral research: planning ethically responsible research. Authors Joan E. Sieber and Martin B. Tolich offer invaluable, practical guidance to researchers and graduate students to understand ethical concerns within real-life research situations, satisfy federal regulations governing human research, and work with the university's Institutional Review Board (IRB). The book includes an abundance of useful tools: detailed instructions on development of an effective IRB protocol; methods for handling issues of consent, privacy, confidentiality and deception; ways to assess risk and benefit to optimize research outcomes; and how to respect the needs of vulnerable research populations.

In The Press

“I particularly enjoyed the energetic and experienced tone of these writers and their willingness to take a stance...The chapters in the second half of the book on consent, confidentiality and autoethnography have thoughtful coverage of qualitative research issues. Equally welcome is their attempt to come up with constructive solutions rather than to simply criticize...The authors have established record in developing an evidence base on human research ethics and I shall be bringing their final chapter, with its ‘Ten Simple Solutions for Making Ethics Review a Learning Institution’, to my own ethics committee.”
