Research ethics… conflicts of interest … collaboration and coauthorship… human subjects… Researchers across the social sciences deal with a host of issues that have to do with how we conduct our work in a responsible, ethical manner, and in a way which mitigates any potential harm our research activities may cause, from the planning stages right through until data management and publication.  Join the School of Social Sciences in a discussion of the responsible conduct of research.

As a UCI economics undergraduate, Sonia Rai had a bubbly personality and a smile that lit up the Social Sciences Undergraduate Student Affairs Office, says Helen Morgan, director of the office where Sonia worked as a peer advisor.  In mid-December 2010, Sonia was diagnosed with Acute Myelogenous Leukemia (AML), a fast-growing cancer of the blood and bone marrow.  She is currently undergoing intense chemotherapy at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, and will require a bone marrow transplant in order to survive beyond the next few months, says her brother Sumit. 

Kids are all right with just mom


According to a new study by UCI economist David Neumark, an increasing rate of incarceration of minority men in the U.S. has contributed to both the increasing number of single-parent minority households and the decreasing number of minority high school dropouts.  The findings are surprising, says Neumark, as they contradict both liberal and conservative views as well as current public policy initiatives.
