Conducting Ethical Research & Evaluation

Select and review a research study related to the public or nonprofit sector, in an area of interest to you.

Think about the three principles of ethical research – respect for persons, beneficence, and justice. Look to see whether and how they are adhered to in the article you chose.


1. Write a description of the study you selected.
2. Briefly explain how the authors of your study applied (or did not apply) the three ethical principles in the conduct of their research.
3. Briefly explain how the authors could have done a better job of applying the principles, or applied them if they did not, or how they potentially might have if you cannot determine this from the articl.
