MEDIA REVIEWS
'This book will become an indispensable resource for those engaging in research in educational institutions and with young people. It provides an even-handed discussion of the importance of ethical research while also balancing the needs of researchers and participants. More importantly, it moves well beyond an abstract discussion of ethics, by providing both novice and experienced researchers with invaluable hands-on advice on how to conduct studies that are ethical, responsible, empowering and meaningful. Anybody embarking on educational research or serving on Research Ethics Committees should read this book.'
-- Wolfgang Lehmann

-- Wolfgang Lehmann

'Resplendent with concrete examples and insightful guidance, Ethics and Education Research is an invaluable resource for all researchers working educational contexts.'

-- Professor Christine Halse
'This book develops a fresh take on the ethical issues associated with conducting research in education. Guided by `ethical reflexivity' the authors develop a new contribution to ethics which takes account of the challenges created by changes to legislation, frameworks and the dilemmas of conducting research that sits alongside professional practice.' -- Julianne Moss
'This is what many of us have been waiting for - a book on educational research ethics that engages critically with the whole of the research process, from beginning to end. Not only that, but the scope is genuinely international and contemporary. This is an invaluable addition to the BERA series.' -- Ian Menter

'Ethics and Educational Research is an excellent text for researchers navigating the range of ethical issues and dilemmas that arise at each stage of the research process. By skillfully weaving together theory and practical examples, this book provokes clarity within a complex terrain and enhances reflective practice within the educational research community.'

-- Laura C. Engel
The authors focus on ethics in the entire research process. The book does not only pay attention to the people who participate in scientific
research, the 'subjects'. Other ethical issues such as relevance of the research question, competence of the researchers, and also handling data, are discussed in detail. At the same time the authors have managed to give a clear structure to the book, from which specific topics can be easily retrieved. -- Eveline Wouters & Sil Aarts
