Write a 700- to 1,050-word paper highlighting the ethical considerations necessary in communication research. Take one of the hypothesis you developed this week and design a hypothetical study to test it. Be sure to address each of the following ethical implications that may occur as you design your study.
- Will participation be confidential or anonymous? What would you prefer if you were a participant of this study? Why?
- How might the wording of your questions asked by your study affect your research?
- What deception might be required by your study, and on what basis might you justify this deception?
- What are the potential risks for research participants for participating in your study?
