Research Ethics and the Internet

Research Ethics and the Internet
Negotiating Canada’s Tri-Council Policy Statement

By Heather A. Kitchin Dahringer  

Kitchen tries to guide readers as they pick their way through the maze that stands in the way of all who seek to find clarity as to the ethics of internet research. The internet poses new challenges to researchers, and the author discusses these challenges in all their complexity. Issues of copyrights, privacy, and the ethical use of internet materials loom large. Also analyzed are contradictions between the federal Tri-Council Policy Statement and the university-based research ethics boards, as well as solutions to policy makers who have to deal with the ethics of internet research.-Abstracts of Public Administration, Development , and Environment, 2009
