During the past decade, scientists engaged in child and adolescent research have gone beyond the laboratory to study issues of increasing societal import. The developmental correlates of divorce, poverty, substance abuse, sexual activity, and school and community violence are just some of the foci of recent scientific inquiry. Research methodologies for studying children and youth in real-world settings have the potential to tap previously undetected emotional, cognitive, or social problems experienced by individual research participants. Research-derived information on child and adolescent participant vulnerabilities -- when encountered in nontreatment settings -- raises ethical issues concerned with balancing respect for participant autonomy with concern for participant welfare. When faced with the knowledge of potential participant risks, investigators need to consider whether information should be shared with children and/or their guardians, whether referral services should be provided, and if the situation requires reporting the problem to local authorities. The articles assembled for this special issue originated in an invited symposium on "Ethical Issues in the Reporting and Referring of Research Participants" held at the biennial meeting of the Society for Research in Child Development. The ethical challenges raised by these articles should contribute to an ongoing dialogue on scientific responsibility and care.
