The Research Ethics Group of the Academy of Social Sciences and the NSMNSS network are convening a one day conference to consider the ethical issues associated with using social media in social science research. As Social Media plays an increasing role in Social Science research, the practicalities, benefits and challenges of making legitimate use of it are an important arena for ethical reflection and dialogue. This conference will move the debate forward and provide examples of good practice.
A small number of discounts are available for postgraduates. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
The keynote speakers will be:
The Ethical Disruptions of Social Media Research: tales from the field.
Professor Susan Halford (Director Web Science Institute, University of Southampton).
Where next for #SocialEthics?
Steven Ginnis (Head of Digital Research, Social Research Institute, Ipsos MORI) and Harry Evans (Research Analyst, Social Research Institute, Ipsos MORI).
The full programme is available here [pdf].
This event builds on earlier conferences, workshops and discussions, organised by the Research Ethics Group of the Academy of Social Sciences. We are particularly keen to promote discussion of the five common principles of social science research ethics, which are the result of our previous work.
