For first response
Some questions to consider for your responses:
How can bias be both positive and negative when conducting research?
How does Borup’s experience with her paper develop from a preexisting bias into a new and exciting topic?
What are other ways that bias occurs in our daily lives? Why is it important for us to acknowledge that bias exists?
Writing Style Best Practices: How does Borup use a story to help convey information to her readers?
“Appendix V: The Ethics of Research” in Booth et. al’s The Craft of Research encourages us to honor and respect “the profoundly social activity” of research (271). It lists several things we can do/not do in order to present ourselves as credible researchers and writers, a goal all of us should strive for in this class and beyond.
Rather than a typical reading response, I instead want you to craft a brief (300 word) Code of Research Ethics. This should be your personal promise to uphold standards of credible and ethical research. It will likely include some things you will/will not do and can certainly borrow some of the suggestions provided in the Appendix. Given that this is your code, I expect there will be a lot of “I” statements in this writing
