AbstractLittle guidance is currently available for handling disputes between research mentors and students when working with shared data. This article analyzes how the ethical guidelines from the American Psychological Association, the Office of Research Integrity, and the American Educational Research Association can inform common disputes in this area. The author finally proposes guidelines that could help prevent this kind of conflict between faculty and students in the future.
