"The great strength of Ethical Issues is that is a truly practical guide for researchers. It addresses the day-today dilemmas that researchers struggle with when trying to balance scientific rigour against ethical responsibilities.... If you think ethical review is an annoyingly bureaucratic hurdle that hampers or compromises your research efforts, I dare you to read it. Ethical Issues might just change your mind!" (Psychology Learning and Teaching, Autumn 2008)

“This book deserves to be read widely by researchers who work with human participants or subjects. This book provides valuable insights about the ethical standards of research. People who work with ethics committees will find this a beneficial … .While his central focus is on behavioral research, the book discusses ethical issues underpinning much non-medical research and thus covers an extensive range of issues … . The reference list provided is among the most comprehensive I have seen in this field, and is fairly up-to-date, which in itself this is a very valuable resource.” (Metapsychology, November 2008)

‚ With Enron, Abu Ghraib and waterboarding at Guantanamo Bay in daily newscasts, Kimmel‚ ™s Ethical Issues in Behavioral Research could not have come at a more propitious time. This page-turning second edition expands and deepens its predecessor ‚ most importantly, in its expanded coverage of ethical concerns in cross-cultural and international research.‚
‚ Howard Wainer, The Wharton School of The University of Pennsylvania

‚ Faced with a daunting array of human subjects regulations and the expanding role of review boards, new investigators will find Kimmel‚ ™s book an invaluable guide. Interspersed with a broad range of case studies, this book is both instructive and highly informative ‚ a thoroughly captivating introduction to the ethics of research with human subjects.‚
