What about ethics?

Interviewing for Education and Social Science Research: The Gateway Approach,
Carolyn Lunsford Mears, Palgrave/Macmillan, 2009, page 34

Mears lists three ethical principles from the Belmont Report (1974,USA) that govern research using human subjects:

  1. Respect for persons, including informed consent, right to privacy, confidentiality and safeguards for those of limited autonomy
  2. Beneficence, namely to do no harm, both maximising benefits and minimising potential for risk
  3. Justice, including fairness and equity in selecting study subjects and sharing the benefits of the researh with all who participated

That seems to cover most things, although sharing the benefits seems difficult to do in a PhD program!
