This assignment will be submitted to Turnitin®.Instructions

Warm-up Activity 6.1
Read the copy of The Belmont Report identified in Books & Resources.  Pay special attention to the principle of justice in choosing research participants.

Assignment

For this assignment, prepare a 5-7 page paper that describes the three main ethical principles for research as outlined in The Belmont Report. Then, using the principle of justice, evaluate the research you have gathered so far to determine if subject selection followed this principle. Some aspects of this principle you will reflect on are included in the following questions:

  • Does the subject selection sufficiently reflect diversity to make the results of the study generalizable to a general population?
  • Were individuals chosen as participants who can expect to benefit from the study?
  • In the case that a diverse group was chosen as the only participants, does this reflect a particular logic or reasoning from within the study, or does this reflect a convenience selection?

Be sure your paper addresses these and other issues.

Length: 5-7 pages. You do not need to include resources other than the ones identified in the assignment.

Your paper should demonstrate thoughtful consideration of the ideas and concepts that are presented in the course, and provide new thoughts and insights relating directly to this topic. Your response should reflect scholarly writing and current APA standards. Be sure to adhere to Northcentral University’s Academic Integrity Policy.
