Following Humberstone et al.’s chapter in section one of this book, this chapter will explore the ethical considerations that need to be included when carrying out research in outdoor studies. Because of the diverse scope of this book, a range of people (for example, outdoor studies students, researchers, or practitioners) could be engaging with a variety of research areas. Therefore this chapter is written to meet these varying needs, but with an emphasis on research that involves people and social conditions. It is split into two parts: Firstly, we provide an introductory overview of ethical considerations. This takes a critical perspective on the application of these considerations in practice. Second, we explore the implications of this critique and propose alternative lenses to help guide our consideration.
