CIM3: Citing research methods: basic skills & checklist

Citation is an inescapable part of Western academic practice. Indeed, all HDR candidates must include a signed statement at the front of their thesis to declare that they have adequately acknowledged all sources of information, including their own (whether internal or external to the thesis). This training was motivated by our observation that many academics do not adequately cite methods, when justifying, explaining or documenting their methods-based choices.

CIM2: Research methods at the centre of ethics application

We will describe how the research method that researchers choose will inform the kinds of ethical issues they will have to address in an ethics application. We explain that placing method at the centre of research ethics starts by acknowledging how method directly shapes your choice of instrument, as well as the protocol for using that instrument.

We present published examples of studies where methods (or their reporting) have been assessed as flawed, biased or discredited in some way.
