Research Ethics and Validity

Locate one peer-reviewed research study with possible ethical concerns. You may use a research study you identified in the Week 2 Annotated Bibliography assignment if appropriate but not the same article used in the Week 3 Learning Team assignment.

When you select your article, consider the possible ethical issues in the research process: sampling, methodology, data collection, etc. The focus should be on the research study, not the health issue.

Write a 700- to 1,050-word paper in which you:

  • Summarize the research study.
  • Identify possible ethical issues within the research study.
  • Explain how the ethical concerns can influence the research outcomes.
  • Define validity as it relates to the research study.
  • Hint: Review previous learning activities for key validity concepts, including internal and external validity and associated threats to validity.
  • Discuss the importance of research design validity and how research bias can impact validity.
  • Hint: Research how design validity and instrumentation validity are different concepts.
  • Discuss how stakeholders can externally influence health care research.
  • Include possible ethical concerns.

Cite at least 3 peer-reviewed scholarly references.

Format your assignment and references according to APA guidelines.
