    Engaging Communities to Strengthen Research Ethics in Low‐Income Settings: Selection and Perceptions of Members of a Network of Representatives in Coastal K Enya.Dorcas M. Kamuya, Vicki Marsh, Francis K. Kombe, P. Wenzel Geissler & Sassy C. Molyneux - 2013 - Developing World Bioethics 13 (1):10-20.
    There is wide agreement that community engagement is important for many research types and settings, often including interaction with ‘representatives’ of communities. There is relatively little published experience of community engagement in international research settings, with available information focusing on Community Advisory Boards or Groups (CAB/CAGs), or variants of these, where CAB/G members often advise researchers on behalf of the communities they represent. In this paper we describe a network of community members (‘KEMRI Community Representatives’, or ‘KCRs’) linked to a (...)

    Comparative Effectiveness Research: What to Do When Experts Disagree About Risks.Reidar K. Lie, Francis K. L. Chan, Christine Grady, Vincent H. Ng & David Wendler - 2017 - BMC Medical Ethics 18 (1):42.
    Ethical issues related to comparative effectiveness research, or research that compares existing standards of care, have recently received considerable attention. In this paper we focus on how Ethics Review Committees should evaluate the risks of comparative effectiveness research. We discuss what has been a prominent focus in the debate about comparative effectiveness research, namely that it is justified when “nothing is known” about the comparative effectiveness of the available alternatives. We argue that this focus may be misleading. Rather, we should (...)

    An Empirical and Ethical Analysis of Factors Motivating Managers' Merger Decisions.Francis K. Achampong & Wold Zemedkun - 1995 - Journal of Business Ethics 14 (10):855 - 865.
    This paper examines the role of managerial self-interest in the merger market. It looks at factors influencing managers'' merger decisions by analyzing managerial expense preference factors on cross-sectional data employing non-parametric statistical methods. The same factors are examined for acquiring, acquired, and merging firms, and control groups used in each case. The results support the authors'' contention that managerial discretion is a significant motivating factor for mergers. The changes in expense preference factors indicate management decisions which provide conditions allowing management (...)

    Enhancing Quality and Integrity in Biomedical Research in Africa: An International Call for Greater Focus, Investment and Standardisation in Capacity Strengthening for Frontline Staff.Francis Kombe - 2015 - BMC Medical Ethics 16 (1):1-5.
    The integrity of biomedical research depends heavily on the quality of research data collected. In turn, data quality depends on processes of data collection, a task undertaken by frontline research staff in many research programmes in Africa and elsewhere. These frontline research staff often have additional responsibilities including translating and communicating research in local languages, seeking informed consent for study participation and maintaining supportive relationships between research institutions and study participants and wider communities. The level of skills that fieldworkers need (...)

    Gaining Human Ethics Approval: A Strategy for Refining Research Studies.S. Allen, K. Francis, M. O'Connor & Y. Chapman - 2008 - Monash Bioethics Review 27 (3):S54-S60.
    We argue that developing a human ethics application is an effective method for refining the intent and design of research studies. Our study aimed to investigate the delivery of end-of-life and palliative care nursing to residents of an aged care unit in a Multi-purpose Service/centre in rural Victoria. We used the ethics application process as a strategy to focus the study, and to refine the data collection and analysis techniques. It is our contention that the process of completing the application (...)

    Consulting Communities on Feedback of Genetic Findings in International Health Research: Sharing Sickle Cell Disease and Carrier Information in Coastal Kenya. [REVIEW]Vicki Marsh, Francis Kombe, Raymond Fitzpatrick, Thomas N. Williams, Michael Parker & Sassy Molyneux - 2013 - BMC Medical Ethics 14 (1):41.
    International health research in malaria-endemic settings may include screening for sickle cell disease, given the relationship between this important genetic condition and resistance to malaria, generating questions about whether and how findings should be disclosed. The literature on disclosing genetic findings in the context of research highlights the role of community consultation in understanding and balancing ethically important issues from participants’ perspectives, including social forms of benefit and harm, and the influence of access to care. To inform research practice locally, (...)

    Promoting Research Integrity in Africa: An African Voice of Concern on Research Misconduct and the Way Forward.Francis Kombe, Eucharia Nkechinyere Anunobi, Nyanyukweni Pandeni Tshifugula, Douglas Wassenaar, Dimpho Njadingwe, Salim Mwalukore, Jonathan Chinyama, Bodo Randrianasolo, Perpetua Akindeh, Priscilla S. Dlamini, Felasoa Noroseheno Ramiandrisoa & Naina Ranaivo - 2014 - Developing World Bioethics 14 (3):158-166.
    African researchers and their collaborators have been making significant contributions to useful research findings and discoveries in Africa. Despite evidence of scientific misconduct even in heavily regulated research environments, there is little documented information that supports prevalence of research misconduct in Africa. Available literature on research misconduct has focused on the developed world, where credible research integrity systems are already in place. Public attention to research misconduct has lately increased, calling for attention to weaknesses in current research policies and regulatory (...)

    Mass Expressions.Francis Jeffry Pelletier & Lenhart K. Schubert - unknown
    previous theories and the relevance of those criticisms to the new accounts. Additionally, we have included a new section at the end, which gives some directions to literature outside of formal semantics in which the notion of mass has been employed. We looked at work on mass expressions in psycholinguistics and computational linguistics here, and we discussed some research in the history of philosophy and in metaphysics that makes use of the notion of mass.

    Bu makale, Osmanlı döneminde, on yedinci yüzyılın ortası ile on sekizinci yüzyılın başında yaşamış olan Müneccimbaşı Ahmed Dede’nin ahlâk, ev idaresi ve siyasetten meydana gelen pratik felsefe türündeki Şerhu’l-Ahlâki’l-Adud şerhinin ahlâk ilmi bölümünü inceleme konusu yapmaktadır. Bu incelemenin iki iddiasından söz edilebilir. Birincisi, Müneccimbaşı ve yazdığı şerh, ahlâk felsefesi veya pratik felsefe açısından ve yazıldığı dönem dikkate alındığında, kadim olandan hareketle yenilenme veya kadim olanı güncelleme olarak tanımlanabilir. Fakat felsefî ahlâk bağlamında, kadim olanı yenileme veya güncelleme, yöntemlerin ayrıştırılması şeklinde değil, (...)

    Sibship Size and Young Women’s Transitions to Adulthood in India.K. G. Santhya & A. J. Francis Zavier - 2017 - Journal of Biosocial Science 49 (S1):S74-S95.
    SummaryIn India, a substantial proportion of young people are growing up in smaller families with fewer siblings than earlier generations of young people. Studies exploring the associations between declines in sibship size and young people’s life experiences are limited. Drawing on data from a sub-nationally representative study conducted in 2006–08 of over 50,000 youths in India, this paper examines the associations between surviving sibship size and young women’s transitions to adulthood. Young women who reported no or a single surviving sibling (...)

    An Empirical Study of Moral Reasoning Among Managers in Singapore.Jayantha S. Wimalasiri, Francis Pavri & Abdul A. K. Jalil - 1996 - Journal of Business Ethics 15 (12):1331 - 1341.
    The study reported here sought to examine the ethical orientations of business managers and business students in Singapore. Data were obtained using Defining Issue Test. Analysis of Variance revealed that age, education and religious affiliation had influenced cognitive moral development stages of the respondents. Vocation, gender and ethnicity did not seem to have affected moral judgement of the subjects. Contrary to the general view, both business students and business managers demonstrated the same level of sensitivity to ethical dimensions of decision-making. (...)

    Abortion Among Married Young Women: Findings From a Community-Based Study in Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh, India.A. J. Francis Zavier, K. G. Santhya & Shireen J. Jejeebhoy - 2020 - Journal of Biosocial Science 52 (5):650-663.
    Abortion service provision has changed noticeably in the recent past and medication abortion currently accounts for four-fifths of all induced abortions taking place in India. How these changes have modified abortion experiences among young women – a group known to be more disadvantaged than adult women – remains unanswered. This paper fills this gap and examines the experiences of married young abortion seekers, including pre-abortion decision-making, abortion seeking and experiences of the procedure, and post-abortion complications. Data were drawn from a (...)
