Fascinating new article available in the BMC Journal of Medical Ethics through Open Access:

Are students kidding with health research ethics? The case of HIV/AIDS research in Cameroon

By: Nchangwi S Munung, Godfrey B Tangwa, Chi P Che, Laurent Vidal and Odile Ouwe-Missi-Oukem-Boyer

First paragraph from Abstract:

Universities in Cameroon are playing an active part in HIV/AIDS research and much of this research is carried out by students, usually for the purpose of a dissertation/thesis. Student theses/dissertations present research findings in a much more comprehensive manner and have been described as the stepping-stone of a budding scientist's potential in becoming an independent researcher. It is therefore important to verify how students handle issues of research ethics.
