Ethical Guidelines for Final Project

Filed under: Uncategorized — skusnitz at 4:18 pm on Wednesday, March 24, 2010  Tagged

For our final project Lauren and I came up with a few ethical guidlines we will follow. Firstly, we plan to use images either from the internet or magazines, therefore we will make sure that they are images we are allowed to copy, or use and that have a license that enables us to post them on our blogs. Another ethical guidline we will adhere to is anonymousness. Meaning, we plan to interview our participants and even give them questionaires. We will make sure with them that they will let us post their names and answers to the questions. However, if they feel more comfortable not having their names posted and would rather be anonymous or have a pseudonym, we will follow their wishes and do so.  If for some reason we plan on taking pictures of the participants, we will make sure that we have their permission to use the pictures of them in our project. Another ethical guidline we will follow is that we will make clear to them that if for any reason they no longer feel comfortable participating or would no longer like to participate in the research, they have the option to drop out, with out consequences or with out being penalized in any way.

Looks like you’ve got all the bases covered, especially since the prof only said ‘very good’, so good job! I probably wouldn’t be able to come up with any helpful suggestions anyway.
