AbstractThe authors of this volume challenge the biomedical basis of research ethics review policies and suggest that these guidelines were created with quantitative research in mind, and actually impede or interrupt work which is not hypothesis-based "hard science." The authors look at ethical issues such as confidentiality, privacy, and the ethics of internet-base research and look at the appropriateness of current ethical review protocols when used to evaluate research in the social sciences.
