Ethical Research Involving Children

From Ginny Morrow and Priscilla Alderson – Research ethics handbook update

We are updating our book The Ethics of Research with Children and Young People: A Practical Handbook (2011 Sage will be 2020 Sage). We plan to show major changes since 2011. We also hope to include more international examples that show how ethical problems arise during research with children, and ways to resolve them.

We welcome practical, specific examples of up to 200 words from researchers about ethical problems that arise in any of these ten areas: planning research; assessing harms and benefits; privacy and confidentiality; research design and methods; funding and payments; ethics review; informing participants; consent; disseminating and implementing findings; impact of research on children. Links to online resources about research ethics, law, policy and practice in your country are also very welcome.

Please send ideas to by 31st December 2018. We will of course name the authors of each example.

Thank you

Ginny Morrow and Priscilla Alderson
