As noted on this blog, in October 2009, the Oral History Association replaced its Evaluation Guidelines with a new set of Principles and Best Practices. The new guidelines are considerably clearer in format, and they distance oral history from the biomedical assumptions of the Belmont Report.
Now the Oral History Association is further distancing itself from the Belmont Report by opening an ongoing discussion of the principles, including suggestion for additional revisions. Whereas the Belmont Report was prepared by a small group of people and has not been amended since 1978, the OHA Principles can remain a living document, revised in response to a discussion that is open to all.
