Abstract

Rubin's (1985)criticism of Smith and Richardson's (1983)study on the role of debriefing in ameliorating harmful effects of deception or other potentially harmful manipulations in psychology experiments is found to be primarily based on a misunderstanding of the purpose of the study. As noted by Smith and Richardson (1983), the study focused on students' global perceptions of their cumulative research experiences rather than the specific effects of particular kinds of experimental manipulations.
