Research Ethics and the Internet: Negotiating Canada’s Tri-Council Policy Statement

Heather Kitchin. Black Point, Nova Scotia: Fernwood Publishing; 2007; 128 pp; ISBN: 978-55266-234-2, paper $17.95 CA
Heather Kitchin helps readers pick their way through the minefield that stands in the way of all who seek to find clarity as to the ethics of Internet research. The Internet poses new challenges to researchers, and the author clearly discusses these challenges in all their complexity. Issues of copyright, privacy and ethical use of Internet materials loom large. In Research Ethics and the Internet, Kitchin analyzes contradictions between the federal Tri-Council Policy Statement and university-based research ethics boards and offers a simple solution to policy makers who grapple with the ethics of internet research.
