Abstract

One of the challenges in conducting criminological research involves addressing and understanding the law regarding protection and disclosure of sources and/or information in respect of offences or intentions to commit offences. This paper presents how this challenge has been addressed by researchers in criminology and examines a range of issues involved. The paper sets out the legal position in the United Kingdom and offers a number of suggestions for addressing the legal and other issues arising.
