Bibliography of select papers on 'ethics' and 'informed consent' in Linguistic research

This is a short non-exhaustive bibliography of papers which discuss Informed consent in the context of one or more of the following:

  • minority language communities,
  • low literacy levels,
  • language research,
  • the legal aspect of the US IRB, and
  • ‘how informed is informed consent’ .

I have several nagging questions, which I wonder how discussed they are including: “Is Intellectual property rights of minority language people covered in the typical informed consent protocols of language researchers?” and “How ethical is it to create voice-to-speech tools for a small language community when only one or two people provide voice samples?” When working independently, outside the confines of an organization these factors are not mitigated by institutional barriers to creativity or participant considerations.
