The updated second edition continues to provide an excellent resource for those exploring the old, current and new consensuses on the ethics of researching with children.
This clear and engaging book challenges and guides researchers and ethics panels alike to consider the child as central in all stages of a research cycle. Bravo!
Alderson and Morrow have, once again, produced the definitive guide to the ethics of working and researching with children. Authoritative, thoughtful, engaging and practical, it is filled with real-life examples from across the world which guide both new and experienced researchers towards the best possible practice in research with children and young people.
The new edition of this book addresses many questions that have arisen in research with children in recent years. It makes clear that ethical maxims are not to be understood as a limitation, but rather as a help for researchers to be aware of their own uncertainties and to be encouraged to question and reflect. The authors understand social research as an open process in which children always are actors, as fellow researchers or researchers in their own cause.
There are few texts available that comprehensively cover the subject of ethical practice in research with children; this book is a valuable contribution to the field.
an excellent and in depth guide for students - I'd say it is "the" guide for anyone embarking on meaningful research involving children.
