A guide to Early Childhood education and care research : Sound ethical practice
Develop a guide on sound ethical practice for early childhood care or education practitioners who might be considering undertaking a basic research project.
The guide should be written in accessible language suitable for the audience but in the context of the philosophical background to research ethics.
Important ethical concepts such as beneficence, non-maleficence, autonomy and consent should be related to the special circumstances that researchers face when working with children and their families.
The guide should appraise the philosophical background relating to social research with children and young people, and be able to justify ethical concepts to research in childhood and learning support.
