Walden University Ethical Research and Evaluation Discussion

Rate this post

History is often a wonderful teacher, and it can offer great insights about how to treat research subjects in an ethical manner. The Johnson textbook and assigned article for this week introduced you to famous (or infamous) examples of extreme ethical violations in research studies. Of particular note are the Tuskegee and Milgram studies. These studies exposed their subjects to serious physical and/or emotional harm, all in the name of research. These examples still serve as cautionary tales to help guide your behavior as you work with subjects in research studies.

Resources Provided:

  • Johnson, G. (2014). Research methods for public administrators (3rd ed.). Armonk, NY: M. E. Sharpe.
    • Chapter 1, “Introduction: Research Methods for Public Administrators” (pp. 3–16)

For this assignment, review the Milgram and Tuskegee cases presented in Johnson Chapter 1and Cave and Holm article.

The assignment must be 1-1.5 pages and include:

1.Select one of these research studies and consider the ethical violations that occurred in that study.

2. a description of the ethical violations you observed in either the Tuskegee or Milgram research study.

3. Explain how your chosen study violated the ethical principles of good research as identified in the Johnson text (page 11 of Johnson pdf).

You must include in text citations from the resources provided to back up any and all statements.
