Week- 6

Practice, Ethics & Integrity


1. The method section of a research report


  • summarizes the data collection procedure and the planned statistical analyses
  • provides information on the measurement materials
  • describes in full every detail of the research design and analyses

2. In the codebook the researcher


  • provides all statistical and data manipulation information
  • specifies the programs that will recognize the data file format
  • specifies what variables were entered into the data file and defines the numeric codes for each variable

3. Research integrity encompasses


  • adherence to rules made by the scientific community
  • good documentation and researchers’ striving for excellence
  • protecting the welfare of participants but also the integrity of the scientific process

4. A recent study in which Facebook users’ moods were manipulated has raised ethical concerns. In defense of the researchers someone states that the effect of the manipulation was minimal and that therefore very little harm was done. This statement pertains to


  • the ethical principle of justice
  • the ethical principle of beneficence
  • the ethical principle of respect

5. A researcher continues to believe in an effect regardless of strong evidence to the contrary. In addition, he refuses to respond to critique. This is an example of


  • a violation of the principle of objectivity
  • self-plagiarism
  • a conflict of interests

6. Suppose you have conducted an experiment on 20 subjects. The results are disappointing in that the hypothesized difference between conditions is not significant (a p value of .08). Given this unfavorable result you decide to run 20 more subjects. This is a questionable research practice because


  • the decision to collect more data should not be conditional upon obtaining a (non-) significant finding
  • the hypothesized difference does not follow from a substantial theory
  • you should have used a power calculation to decide on the number of participants needed

7. Published articles should ideally be


  • chosen only if they show confirmatory results
  • subjected to peer review
  • revised multiple times

8. Proposed solutions to publication bias include


  • publishing in open access journals
  • preregistration and pre-acceptance of the hypothesis and research setup
  • making the data and analyses publicly available
