Abstract:
Many researchers fail to institute appropriate safeguards to protect children from exploitation. In fact, the record of research done on children has led Lederer and Grodin (1994) to conclude that, "The history of pediatric experimentation is largely one of child abuse" (p. 19). To some extent exploitation occurs because investigators are naive about the differences between adults and children and the additional precautions necessary to insure the protection of children's rights. This paper addresses ethical issues related to research with children. A developmental perspective provides the framework for discussing the inclusion of children in research. Justification for including children as subjects, research design implications, and human subjects safeguards specific to children are addressed. An historical overview places the current status of research with children in context. Issues such as children's capacity to understand what is being asked of them, their ability to exercise their rights, and their vulnerability as participants in research studies are addressed. A survey of current research involving children provides the basis for elaborating the ethical issues specific to children as subjects. A synthesis of research guidelines of several pediatric professional organizations provides the foundation for future recommendations. The paper concludes with a summary of the ethical issues that researchers and reviewers need to consider when a research design includes children as research subjects.
