There is increased emphasis internationally on ethically sound research, and on good training for research supervisors. Researching with Integrity identifies what and how research can be undertaken ethically and with 'virtue' from initial conception of ideas through to dissemination. It outlines the context in which academics engage in research, considering the impact of discipline and institutional culture, the influence of government audit of research 'quality', the role of government and quangos, professional organizations and business sponsors, and examines the effects of the increasing power and influence of funding bodies, university ethics committees and codes of practice. Based on the notion of 'virtue' ethics, this book proposes an alternative approach to research, which focuses not only on ethical rules and protocol to avoid unethical research, but encourages academic, professional and character development and allows for the exercise of personal judgement. Illustrated throughout with short narratives detailing ethical issues and dilemmas from interntional academic researchers representing different disciplines, research cultures and national contexts, this books proposes an alternative approach to research which provides all research professionals with the intellectual tools they need to cope with complex research.
