Finding out about ethics: what sources of information do Australian psychologists find useful?
Sullivan, Karen A. (2005) Finding out about ethics: what sources of information do Australian psychologists find useful? Australian Psychologist, 40(3), pp. 187-189.
In 1999 a national survey of 2,100 members of the Australian Psychological Society (APS) was undertaken to investigate Australian psychologists’ ethical beliefs and behaviours (Sullivan, 2002). As part of this survey, participants were asked to rate the usefulness of various sources of ethics information. Approximately six hundred respondents answered this section of the survey, indicating Australian psychologists consider a range of sources of information about ethics useful and favour discussions with colleagues. Results are discussed in relation to findings from overseas surveys that have also addressed this issue, and several recommendations are made about future ethics education.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
