Bell and Newby (1977:9 10) argue that accounts ofresearch experiences are as, if not more, valuable for learning than most methodstextbooks, whilst Helen Roberts (1981:1) contends that “problems raised in personalaccounts of research are themselves of sociological importance”. Burgess (1984:207)adds thatit is only by constant self evaluation and reflection on our research experiences that we are most likely to understand moral dilemmas and the compromises that we are required to make in the conduct of our field research.Hammersley and Atkinson (1995:285), more recently note thatit is important that the ethical issues surrounding research are discussed publicly, since this will feed into the deliberations of individual researchers and research teams.It is with this in mind that I write this paper, hoping it may provide a basis forfurther discussion and that my experience might provide for thought forthose working in similar areas of education and social policy research.The study I am using to illustrate some of the problems I have encountered is an ESRCfunded research project conducted as the basis of a doctoral thesis. The main aim of theresearch is to illuminate students perceptions of future educational and labourmarket routes.
It interesting that despite trying to be highly sympathetic, the article still paints Goodman in a bad light, in my opinion. All Goodman can say is that race is a continuum, not a finite set. But so what? Self defined race is still highly correlated with genes, and hence phenotype (in this case, body dimensions), so why is self defined race not a useful category? Anyone with any knowledge of statistics, probability or machine learning can see through Goodman platitudes.

The deal, announced at parallel press conferences in Oslo and Copenhagen on Friday afternoon, showed Sweden has failed in its diplomatic efforts to be included in the first stage of a Nordic travel bubble.
This is particularly true at the early stages of the disease. It is therefore possible to catch COVID 19 from someone who has, for example, just a mild cough and does not feel ill. WHO is assessing ongoing research on the period of transmission of COVID 19 and will continue to share updated findings..
