This will be a discussion post regarding research misconduct for my doctoral research ethics class. You must support your response with at least three new
peer-reviewed articles, but can also cite any of the provided resources. For this particular assignment, using McNamee, M. J., Olivier, S., & Wainwright, P.
(2006). Research ethics in exercise, health and sports sciences. Routledge. Chapter 6 (pp. 108-129) Scientific misconduct: authorship, plagiarism and fraud,
and blowing the whistle on it and Chapter 10 Research and society: is bad science ipso facto bad ethics? (pp. 181-195). , and the other provided sources and
ones listed below, respond to the following topic:
Discuss different types of research misconduct, and possible reasons that research misconduct occurs. Differentiate between research misconduct, as
defined by federal policy, and questionable research practices.
Discuss responsible and ethical data management as it relates to your final assignment topic ((effect of daily vs. weekly check-ins for adherence in an online
fitness & nutrition coaching program). Identify the considerations that must be made to ensure that your data management plan is comprehensive and
follows ethical best practice standards based on the scholarly literature. Explain how participants’ anonymity, confidentiality and privacy will be protected
prior to, during, and after the research data is collected.
The expectation for satisfactory work is 400 – 500 words per topic with at least 3 current peer reviewed references utilized. Textbooks, blogs, magazine or
internet articles, book chapters, or special reports, do not count toward the peer-reviewed minimum. Connections to the peer reviewed references should be
used throughout your writing with in-text citations and matching reference citations.
