Research ethics and integrity are growing in importance as academics face increasing pressure to win grants and publish and universities promote themselves in an increasingly competitive market. Research Ethics in the Real World is the first book to highlight the links between research ethics and individual, social, professional, institutional, and political ethics. Drawing on both indigenous and Western research traditions, Helen Kara considers all stages of the research process, from the formulation of a research question to aftercare for participants, data and findings. She argues that knowledge of both ethical approaches is helpful for researchers working in either paradigm. Students, academics, and research ethics experts from around the world contribute real-world perspectives on navigating and managing ethics in practice. Research Ethics in the Real World provides guidance for quantitative, qualitative, and mixed-methods researchers about how to act ethically throughout the work of research.

Review Quotes
The Evaluator
“A great resource for thinking through ethics at every stage of the research design.”
The Independent Scholar
“This excellent book goes far beyond the basic tenet of “do no harm,” and its comprehensive and holistic approach to the very real ethical issues confronting scholars, especially those in qualitative research, provides a wonderful resource…Not only that, but the book is beautifully written and, despite the author’s clam that there are “not many laughs” to be found this reviewer has found herself repeatedly diving into her review copy just for the pleasure of it.”
