Conference Announcement: Finding Common Ground? Research ethics across the Social Sciences.

December 17, 2013 1378

10th January 2014, 09.30 – 16.30, British Library Conference Centre

We are pleased to hold this conference in partnership with the Academy of Social Sciences. The conference is supported by The British Psychological Association, The British Sociological Association, The Economic and Social Research Council and the Open University.

This major conference marks the end of the first phase of the work begun during the Academy of Social Sciences’ three Symposia held in Spring 2013. These focused on Principles, Values and Standards within the framework of a discussion on generic principles in social science research. The proceedings of the symposia have been published in a Professional Briefing a copy of which is available here.

This one day event is open to all with an interest in research ethics. It aims to widen the earlier discussions in order to consolidate current thinking and identify how best to take the work forward. The morning is mainly concerned with summarising the debate so far, based on a discussion paper by working group members Robert Dingwall, Ron Iphofen, John Oates and Janet Lewis, and a contribution from a leading participant in similar US debates for more than two decades. The afternoon will focus on looking forward, particularly from a `bottom-up’ perspective.

The day is structured, with workshops in the morning and afternoon, to enable those attending to participate fully in the discussions. The formal part of the day will finish with a Plenary Session and will be followed by a wine reception, kindly sponsored by Emerald Group Publishing.

All those with an interest in research ethics are invited to attend. The cost of the conference is £60 and a limited number of bursaries of £30 are available for graduate students or people who are un-waged. For further details of the programme and to reserve a place please visit here.
