The internet, particularly social media, provides growing opportunities for researchers; a ready source of data, recruitment and research engagement, and will be the focus for this conference.   Data can be easily accessible – does the fact that they can be in the public domain mean that no ethical issues arise?  Is it ethical to engage with participants in action research using social media?  Is covert engagement ever ethical?

This all day event is an opportunity for all academic staff but should be of particular interest to those serving on university ethics committees and those involved in internet mediated research. The morning will be a plenary session with external speakers, there will be a networking lunch and the afternoon will be dedicated to break out discussion groups considering ethics case studies across all Faculties.

The programme is now available to view here.
