What ethical considerations are important to research?
Honesty is one ethical consideration that is paramount for any research. The researcher is
supposed to be honest when requesting for personal information and ensure that they use them
only for the purpose for which they request it. Honesty in all communications regarding the
research is also crucial. Apart from that, integrity in safeguarding participants’ personal
information, agreements and communications is also important. This ensures that users’
information and communication is not misused. Another core ethical consideration is objectivity.
Researchers are supposed to avoid bias and personal attitudes in experiments, data collection,
data analysis, as well as data interpretation. This ensures that the research is reliable for use by
other individuals. Social responsibility is also important and ensures that the research does not
affect the social environment. It ensures that the research does not have social harm. This also
encompasses human subject protection – ensuring that all research participants are safe and
healthy after the research. Competence is also a key ethical consideration. This ensures that only
professional engage in research. The researcher is supposed to seek professional assistance in
areas they are not aware. Legality is another core ethical consideration. This ensures that

One of the ethical considerations here is that the researcher is not open to tell the
participants all the truths about the experiment. Although the experiment would not have been
complete if the researcher told the participants that the student was their confederate, research

ethics commands openness. Apart from that, the conclusion of the research that men are willing
to kill a new person they have met because they are commanded by authority is objective biased.
The researcher should have used at least three different experiments on the same people before
making the conclusions. This is because they would make different decision in each of the
experiments, thus giving better conclusions.

Psychology, 94(2), 303-304. doi:10.1080/00224545.1974.9923224
In this research, the main ethical consideration that was violated is the failure to put it
open and straight the objectives and aims of the research. Although this research required
students to choose a line that was similar to another on another card, it ended up measuring the
self-esteem and conformity. The lack of establishing at first hand that the research will be
dealing with conformity and self-esteem might have caused the students to think that it was
basically an exercise of picking without any thoughts or considerations. This might have been
the core issue that escalated the rate of conformity.

In this research, the main ethical consideration that might have been violated is the fact
that the schools where the participants were sourced were mentioned, which can uncover the real
identifies of the students that picked the marshmallow at first and those that waited for the two
marshmallows. This can be possible if a teacher took note of those that picked the marshmallow
on both sides. If this occurs, it compromises the respect and dignity of the participants. It can
also lead to breach of the confidentiality of the research.
