Research ethics… conflicts of interest … collaboration and coauthorship… human subjects… Researchers across the social sciences deal with a host of issues that have to do with how we conduct our work in a responsible, ethical manner, and in a way which mitigates any potential harm our research activities may cause, from the planning stages right through until data management and publication.  Join the School of Social Sciences in a discussion of the responsible conduct of research.
