Questions of research ethics are matters of concern in all fields of scientific endeavour. This collection of essays explores issues that often come into view in humanistic and social science research. A general introductory article discusses major challenges of practical research ethics appearing along the entire time span on a research undertaking. In the articles that follow, analyses departing from a variety of vantage points address key issuessuch as protecting individual integrity, obtaining informed consent, exploring private and intimate arenas, doing research on weak groups, being caught between conflicting socio-political forces, seeking truth and validity of texts, studying crossroads of cultures, and assessing value structures underlying concerns of research ethics. The publication is a result of a special programme initially termed Folklore Fellows Code of Ethics set up by Lauri Honko in 1998. Printed Pages: 232.
