Due to significant violations of federal and institutional rules and regulations, ethical issues in human participant research have received increasing attention over the past 50 years. While it might seem obvious that respect, integrity, fidelity, and justice should serve as the ethical foundation for all research activities, this has not always been the case for research involving human participation.Instructions:After reviewing Standard 8: Research and Publication of the APA Ethics Code, select three of the substandards and discuss their importance with respect to research activities. The fifteen substandards include:8.1 Institutional Approval8.2 Informed Consent to Research8.3 Informed Consent for Recording Voices and Images in Research8.4 Client/Patient, Student, and Subordinate Research Participants8.5 Dispensing with Informed Consent for Research8.6 Offering Inducements for Research Participation8.7 Deception in Research8.8 Debriefing8.9 Humane Care and Use of Animals in Research8.10 Reporting Research Results8.11 Plagiarism8.12 Publication Credit8.13 Duplicate Publication of Data8.14 Sharing Research Data for Verification8.15 ReviewersConsider a proposed research study that interests you and discuss how these standards would apply during the research process, including how you might ensure the protection of human subjects in a study on your topic.Locate at least two scholarly references from the Ashford University Library to support your discussion. Your paper should be 800- words in length (not counting the title and References pages).ResourcesRequired TextMalec, T. & Newman, M. (2013). Research methods: Building a knowledge base.
