1.1 Researcher accountabilities
The British Educational Research Association’s ethical guidelines (2018) are helpful when thinking about researcher accountabilities. This guidance is organised according to five sets of responsibilities, to:
- sponsors, clients and stakeholders in research
- the community of educational researchers
- publication and dissemination
- researchers’ wellbeing and development.
To help you think about this range of responsibilities, consider Case study 3.1 on the next page.
