The paper proposes to initiate discussion about research ethics in Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) and Integrating Content and Language (ICL) by presenting the results of a small-scale empirical study on the topic. Adapting Corrigan’s (2002) research ethics survey questionnaire, the study found that the 47 CLIL and ICL researchers and practitioners who participated in the study often were divided in how to come to terms with a hypothetical research ethics quandary. Differences may be accounted for in how the quandary was perceived, what salient features of the quandary were considered prominent, and what background knowledge participants may have brought to bear on the resolution of the quandary. The survey is recommended to initiate discussion among novice and veteran CLIL and ICL researchers with regards to issues that may exist in their research.
