1.       Discuss how you might conduct field research if researching the play patterns of children at home and in school. What particular problems would you encounter in gathering suitable data? What ethical issues will need to be addressed?

2.       Read over the ethical codes of conduct links included in this chapter and discuss the similarities and any differences between them. Which issues are likely to be particularly relevant to your own future research, with respect to both completing your programme of studies and in your future career?

3.       Review a suitable journal article (related to your own area of expertise) in terms of the ethical issues addressed by the researcher. What other ethical issues might the researcher consider?
