This book focuses on doing ethical research with children in today’s climate of increased globalisation, surveillance and awareness of children as competent research participants. It covers a range of conceptual, methodological and procedural issues, and provides a framework for doing ethical research with children. Written by international experts in the fields of early childhood research and ethics, this book supports students’, practitioner-researchers and research gate-keepers with resources on how to conduct and evaluate ethical research with children. The contributors use key examples of cutting-edge research from a range of countries to examine research ethics with children and those around them; provide strategies for planning, conducting and evaluating research in an ethical way, and explore theoretical approaches to children and childhood that are relevant to ethical research. Ethical Research with Children is key reading for students’ in childhood studies, teacher education, public health, nursing, human services, legal studies, psychology and social sciences, as well as practitioner-researchers in these fields.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® 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.
