"This compact book is intended as a practical guide for students involved in research, and it fulfils that goal well. ...The chapter on 'The funding and sponsorship of research' is an excellent example of the author's willingness and ability to include relevant, sensitive and practical content that is often left out of texts on ethics. ...This is an easy book to read, it is concise and keeps to relevant content. ...It would make an excellent text for a course in research ethics and/or research methods, and it will also provide an excellent planning and self-review guide for a practising researcher." Higher Education Review
"The book is aimed primarily at higher education students in education and the social sciences who are conducting a (typically small scale) research project. That is not to say that the publication is of little value to the supervisors of such projects or to experienced researchers as a resource. ...the successful integration of a wide range of theoretical perspectives on ethics in the text is... one of the main accomplishments of this publication" RTI Resource Centre
