Research Ethics in Exercise, Health and Sports Sciences puts ethics at the centre of research in these rapidly expanding fields of knowledge. Placing the issues in historical context, and using informative case studies, the authors examine how moral theory can guide research design, education, and governance. As well as theoretical analysis, key practical concerns are critically discussed, including: * informed consent * anonymity, confidentiality and privacy * plagiarism, misappropriation of authorship, research fraud and 'whistleblowing' * ethics in qualitative research * vulnerable populations * trans-cultural research. Providing an accessible and robust theoretical framework for ethical practice, this book challenges students, researchers and supervisors to adopt a more informed and proactive approach to ethics in exercise, health and sports research. This insightful text will be of great interest to those taking a kinesiology, human movement, sport science or sport studies degree course.
