Advances in Research Ethics and Integrity
Advances in Research Ethics and Integrity addresses new problems, issues and concerns in the fields of research ethics and research integrity. This series is unique in confronting these challenges head on by debating and suggesting realistic solutions that can be implemented in practice.
Research ethics and integrity problems continue to challenge the research community. New cases constantly test the resources of professional associations and research ethics review committees alike.
This series offers practical help and guidance in actual research engagements as well as meeting the often varied and challenging demands of research ethics review. Thus the approach is not one of abstract moral philosophy; instead it seeks to help researchers think through the potential harms and benefits of their work and its societal impact and acceptance.
While the research community can be highly imaginative both in the fields of study and methodological innovation, the structures of management and reward can pressure researchers into errors of judgment that can have personal and professional consequences. This series adopts a ‘virtue’ ethics approach which promotes good practice and sets principles, values and standards that can act as models to aid successful research outcomes. There is clear international appeal as researchers, commissioners and practitioners alike share a vested interest in the global promotion of professional values and standards that lead to public acceptability.

More information about Volume 1: Finding Common Ground - Consensus in Research Ethics Across the Social Sciences
Over the past decade there has been growing national and international concern about the impact of systems for the management of research ethics in the social sciences. In particular these ‘procedural bureaucracies’ are seen as inappropriate to the ethical governance of social scientific research as they were designed around the challenges presented by biomedical research.
The volume draws on proceedings and papers delivered at a Symposia series under the auspices of the UK Academy of Social Sciences (AcSS). This project aimed to advance the understanding and application of core ethics values to all aspects of social science research from inception and review through research design, data acquisition, analysis and management to dissemination and application, in collaboration with social science learned societies, research funders, higher education establishments, researchers and participants in research.
