It puts forth the following basic principles: -sometimes ASA's Code of Ethics, is not a sufficient guarantee of ethical conduct The systematic coding and objective recording of data, guided by some rationale Ex: despite women's participation in all sports, content analysis of televised sports coverage shows that even when a men's sport is out of season, it gets more coverage than women's sports in season. furthermore, coverage of female cheerleaders and athletes' wives exceeds coverage of the female athletes who compete in sports -correlations are an indication that causality may be present; they do not necessarily indicate causation -basic technique of ethnography is observation, or direct participation in closely watching a group or organization -although ethnography may seem a relatively informal method compared to surveys or experiments, ethnographic researchers are careful to take detailed notes while observing their subjects -in some cases, the sociologist actually joins a group for a period, to get an accurate sense of how it operates, this approach is called participant observation -ethnographic research poses other complex challenges for the investigator. scientists must be able to fully understand what they are observing. in a sense, then, researchers must learn to see the world as the group sees it in order to fully comprehend the events taking place around them. this raises a delicate issue. if the researcher is to be successful, the observer cannot allow the close associations or even friendships that inevitably develop to influence the subject's behavior or the conclusions of the study. -Even while working hard to gain acceptance from the group being studied, the participant observer must maintain some degree of detachment -when sociologists want to study a possible cause-and-effect relationship, they may conduct experiments -in the classic method of conducting an experiment, 2 groups are selected and matched for similar characteristics, such as age or education. the researcher then assign the subjects to one of the 2 groups -in some experiments, just as in observation research, the presence of a social scientist or other observer may affect the behavior of the people being studied -the term originated as the result of an experiment conducted at the Hawthorne plant of the Western Electric Company during the 1920s and 1930s. researchers found that every change they made in working conditions- even reduced lighting- seemed to have a positive effect on workers' productivity. they concluded that workers had made a special effort to impress their observers. though the carefully constructed study did identity some causes for changes in the workers' behavior hat did not have to do with their being observed, the term Hawthorne effect has become synonymous with a placebo or guinea pig effect -can obtain a higher response rate, because people find it more difficult to turn down a personal request for an interview than to throw away a written questionnaire Ex: female interviewers tend to receive more feminist responses from female subjects than do map interviewers, and Black interviewers ten do receive more detailed responses about race-related issues from Black subjects than do White interviewers -while the mode is easier to identify than other summary measures, it tells sociologists little about all the other values A research technique in which an investigator collects information through direct participation, by closely watching a group or community -most common form is ethnography, or observation -this type of research can make use of large samples, it can't offer great depth and detail on a topic -have the advantage of being cheaper, especially in large samples -selection of a research design is often based on the theories and hypotheses the researcher starts with. the choice requires creativity and ingenuity, because it directly influences both the cost of the project and the amount of time needed to collect the data -research designs that sociologists regularly use to generate data include surveys, ethnography, experiments, and existing sources -requires precise preparation in developing research. otherwise, the research data collected may not prove accurate. -sociologists and other researchers follow 5 basic steps in the scientific method: -sociologists consider secondary analysis to be nonreactive- that is, it does not influence people's behavior -there is one inherent problem, however: the researcher who relies on data collected by someone else may not find exactly what is needed -many social scientists find it useful to study cultural, economic, and political documents, including newspapers, periodicals, radio and television taps, the Internet, scripts, diaries, songs, folklore, and legal papers A study, generally in the form of an interview or questionnaire, that provides researchers with information about how people think and act -must be based on precise, representative sampling if it is to genuinely reflect a broad range of the population -in preparing to conduct a survey, sociologists must not only develop representative samples; they must also exercise great care in the wording of questions -surveys can be indispensable sources of information, but only if the sampling is done properly and the questions are worded accurately and without bias -2 main forms of the survey: interview and questionnaire -he recognized that personal values would influence the questions that sociologists select for research. -as part of this neutrality, investigators have an ethical obligation to accept research findings even when the data run counter to their personal views, to theoretically based explanations, or to widely accepted beliefs -for example, Émile Durkheim challenged popular conceptions when he reported that social (rather than supernatural) forces were an important factor in suicide. -although some sociologists believe that neutrality is impossible, ignoring the issue would be irresponsible.
