Section Introduction:
As part of your doctoral program, you will complete Collaboration Institutional Training Institute (CITI) ethics training. This certification remains valid for two years. At the end of that time, you will need to update your training to remain active. Please note, in addition to the general modules completed, some students may be required to complete additional modules particular to their research (for example – working with protected populations like prisoners). Please keep a copy of your CITI certificate in a folder you can easily access and back up on your computer (or the cloud).
All research must be conducted ethically to ensure protection of all involved. One of the ways that institutions ensure this is through the Institution Review Board process. Below is a checklist for ethical research:
? Confirm in a statement that the study will receive approval from the Institutional Review Board (IRB) prior to data collection.
? If the risk to participants is greater than minimal, discuss the relevant ethical issues and how they will be addressed.
? Describe how confidentiality or anonymity will be achieved.
? Identify how the data will be securely stored in accordance with IRB requirements.
? Describe the role of the researcher in the study. Discuss relevant issues, including biases as well as personal and professional experiences with the topic, problem, or context. Present the strategies that will be used to prevent these biases and experiences from influencing the analysis or findings.

Read and Study Chapter 4 Writing Strategies and Ethical Considerations in Research Design by John W. Creswell. Read and Study 3.11 Reducing Bias and Ethical Issues in the APA Manual. Familiarize yourself with CalSouthern’s IRB application and IRB Policies and Procedures in the Doctoral Project Manual.
