What’s My Domain? Everything Else
Welcome again to the ethics blog, this time from your journalist on “professional life” issues. Compared to research or teaching, it may be more difficult to define this sphere of ethical issues.
For me, research evokes a process of reading, analyses, writing, presenting, submitting to editors (and in my case, often re-submitting after editorial rejection) and publishing pieces for a variety of outlets: journals, books, book chapters, working papers, policy reports, case studies and other scholarly purposes. The ethical issues this process raises are myriad, but the process has an intuition that many can grasp pretty easily.
