Discussion 1: Ethics
Helping professionals take ethical principles and standards very seriously. Following a basic ethical code of conduct is important to criminal behavior research as well as how you conduct yourself in your professional practice.
For this Discussion, review the ethical code that guides your profession. Consider how the principles and codes apply to conducting research in criminal behavior. Then, review the “Introduction to the Responsible Conduct of Research” on the Office of Research Integrity website and reflect on how these standards apply to the conduct of research in criminal behavior. Select at least one ethical principle and one research standard and reflect on how they might be applied to conducting research in criminal behavior.
By Day 3
Post a brief description of one ethical principle and one research standard that you think applies to conducting research in criminal behavior. Then, explain how each applies, using specific examples.
Note: Put the ethical code and principle and research standard you described in the first line of your post. You will be asked to respond to a colleague who described either a different ethical principle or a different research standard than you did.
Be sure to support your postings and responses with specific references to the resources.
