It then discusses ethics related to methodologic issues in community-based intervention research, including intervention strategies, data collection, and study design. It also discusses ethical issues related to research participants, interdisciplinary and professional relationships, and relationships of science to society. The chapter concludes with a brief overview of ethical issues in conducting research with Internet communities or collecting data using the Internet and in community-based research in international settings.
