While collecting data in the name of research, an operational "guffaw" is detected, or suspected? What is the appropriate next step? Name and shame has been one next step, but is questionable on many fronts. Contacting the operator directly may face many obstacles including, lack of attentiveness, lack of proper registered contact addresses, organization barriers, and so on. Once a "guffaw" is uncovered, does the research bear some responsibility (liability) to report it? The talk is motivated by some on-going research meant to measure the health of a protocol's development. There's no obvious answer to this, but it appears to be a topic worthy of a community discussion and perhaps some best practice style recommendations.


A discussion on responsible reporting of research "side effects."

Talk Duration 15 Minutes
