A practical guide to carrying out ethical research with children and young people, this practical handbook examines the ethical questions that arise at each stage of research, from first plans to dissemination and impact.

• Practical guidance for responding to recent global changes in policy and practice in ethics and law

an excellent and in depth guide for students - I'd say it is "the" guide for anyone embarking on meaningful research involving children.
