Research Methods for Criminal Justice and Criminology
In the New York Times article, “Columbia’s Gang Scholar Lives on the Edge”, several research and ethical issues are detailed surrounding the research of one particularly famous scholar in criminology, Sudhir Venkatesh. For your first analysis paper, discuss the ethical and other research considerations from the book (and class lectures) that you think Dr. Venkatesh may have violated. Be sure to discuss why they are a problem for his research from both an (a) ethics perspective and (b) data perspective (i.e., how does his data suffer when not addressing these ethical or research principals?). You do not need to use external citations but you are expected to cite the book and article when appropriate. Remember, while you do not need a cover page, you do need to place your citations in APA style.
