"The Handbook of Social Research Ethics" is the first comprehensive volume of its kind to offer a deeper understanding of the history, theory, philosophy, and implementation of applied social research ethics. Much of the literature surrounding research ethics originates from or focuses on medical or related health science issues involving human subject research. Yet, the intricacies of social research often raises ethical concerns and issues that are unique to or requiring further contextualization to general research ethics topics, guidelines, and practices. This volume brings together eminent, international scholars across the social and behavioral sciences and education to address those ethical issues that arise in the theory and practice of research within the technologically advancing and culturally complex world in which we live. In addition, ethical dilemmas that arise in the relationship between research practice and social justice issues are examined.The guiding themes used throughout the volume include: defining and exploring the role(s) of ethics in research from a multi-disciplinary perspective; making explicit the differing ethical emphases entailed by differing research traditions; locating ethical concerns within research practice; and, elucidating how each of the above influences the relationship between good ethical practice and good research practice. This reference is an invaluable resource to graduate students, professors, researchers, and practitioners of various kinds of social and behavioral research.

Donna M. Mertens is professor emerita at Gallaudet University in Washington, DC. She taught research methods and program evaluation to Deaf and hearing students at the MA and PhD levels for over 30 years. Her research and evaluation work includes studies on such topics as transformative mixed methods approaches that can contribute to improvement of environmental justice in Korea, economic development and child health in Indigenous communities in Guatemala, reducing violence and improving quality of life in Chile, improvement of special education services in many international settings, enhancing the educational experiences of students with disabilities, preventing sexual abuse in residential schools for Deaf students, improving access to the court systems for Deaf and hard-of-hearing people, and improving the preparation of teachers of the Deaf through appropriate use of instructional technology. Her research focuses on improving methods of inquiry by integrating the perspectives of those who have experienced oppression in our society. She draws on the writings of feminists, racial and ethnic minorities, people with disabilities, and Indigenous peoples who have addressed the issues of power and oppression and their implications for research methodology.
