Book description

The sixth edition of the Manual for Research Ethics Committees was first published in 2003, and is a unique compilation of legal and ethical guidance which will prove useful for members of research ethics committees, researchers involved in research with humans, members of the pharmaceutical industry and students of law, medicine, ethics and philosophy. Presented in a clear and authoritative form, it incorporates the key legal and ethical guidelines and specially written chapters on major topics in bioethics by leading academic authors and practitioners, pharmaceutical industry associations and professional bodies.


Review of the hardback:‘… a timely and important publication that should be an invaluable aid for applied psychologists, or anyone planning joint research with the NHS … any researcher or member of an ethics committee will find plenty of interest.’

Source: The Psychologist

Review of the hardback:‘… the guidelines are narrowly drawn to provide help for specific types of research; from work on radiation, gene transfer, or the use of genetic information to research in developing countries or with participants who cannot give informed consent … the biggest challenge to the individual researcher is finding help to work through ethical issues, and the resource compiled by Eckstein and her colleagues is a useful place to start.’
