Ethical Issues in Psychiatric Research
The primary goal of psychiatric research is to increase scientific knowledge about human psychology and behavior. Other chapters in this book treat the methodologies for achieving this goal as well as special topics and areas about which knowledge is sought. In this chapter, we consider ethical issues that arise in the course of formulating and conducting psychiatric research.
