Robson, E. (2017). Editorial: Ethics committees, journal publication and research with children. Children’s Geographies, Published on-line ahead of print, 1-8.
Stepping down from co-editing Children’s Geographies and at about the same time taken up a new role as founding chair of the Research and Evaluation Ethics Committee for Save the Children UK stimulated reflections on some issues pertaining to research with children, ethics committees and academic journal publishing. In this editorial, I explore some of the debates between the merits of formal ethics regulation systems (as operationalised by institutions) and the practice of ethics-related reflection and action (by critical researchers). It is to be hoped that the reflections set out below will be pertinent to children’s geographers and other readers of this journal.
