ETHICS IN SOCIAL RESEARCH 2 When conducting research in a social setting, the sociologists must be sensitive and aware of his or her general principles and ethics. Two scenarios have been presented; a researcher studying dorm life and a research questionnaire in circulation. For each scenario, I will identify an ethical component; express my feelings concerning the scenario and my opinion of the procedures. In the first scenario a researcher is studying dorm life on a campus. The scenario does not state the type of data that the researcher is trying to discover. During the time spent researching there was an unanticipated discovery of alcohol violations conducted by campus residents. When a researcher prepares to conduct a study they should plan for the data they will discover. In this scenario there is not a plan to analyze data on alcohol use among residents. Since there is not a plan for such data, the researcher decides that this information is considered an unanticipated research opportunity and does not release his information in his report.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
