**>> read 4 study resources (study1 & study2 & study3 & study4) to follow the requirement to write the paper
The readings include original research articles, one by Milgram (1963), one by Middlemist et al. (1976), one by Hammen and Krantz (1976), and one by van Beest and Williams(2006). These articles contain some statistical material, but you do not have to fully understand the statistics in order to understand the article, because the authors provide descriptions and interpretations in plain English. With careful reading, you will have no trouble understanding the research.
After Read the assigned 4 source, answer the following questions in essay format:
- The conduct of psychological research raises several ethical issues. Based on the readings, identify and discuss briefly at least three major areas as an introduction to your response.
- All four studies raise potentially important and controversial ethical issues. Discuss what you think the controversy might be when answering the following questions. Answer the same series of questions (4 questions; below)with respect to each study. Feel free to make comparisons between the studies. Remember, answer the questions with respect to all four readings.
1.What is the hypothesis being investigated?
2.What variables are the researchers studying, and how are they operationalized (measured)
3.What are some points of ethical objection that a critic might put forth? (List only objections on ethical grounds, not objections about other aspects of the research.) Feel free to develop your own ideas on the subject
4.What is your overall evaluation of the research? If you were on an ethics review board, would you have approved the research? Why or why not? Would you personally have wanted to be in this research as participant?
- Please note that these studies were chosen for discussion because they introduce ethical problems for discussion. They are by no means typical of psychological research. Most psychological research, in fact, presents no ethical risks whatever to research participants and all must be approved by institutional review boards at the researcherâ€™s participant?
