Meanwhile, the process of conducting research in the social sciences may results in harm to the study participants; thus, the need for and adherence to ethical considerations to guide social scientific studies. This theoretical paper, therefore, is an attempt to review ethical challenges in the Social Sciences. The paper, which utilized the functionalist theory, identified the important role research ethical play in quality research output in the social sciences. The paper also examined the areas where ethical considerations are needed in social research, including among others: research methods, subject matter, data analysis and reporting, and utilization of research findings. Major ethical principles in social science research were highlighted in this paper. Furthermore, common ethical challenges in social research were also addressed. The paper concludes that, strict adherence to ethical standards in social research would go a long way to ensure credibility in any research enterprise, and by extension, lead to sustainable national development. An enduring strategy is therefore, needed to enhance ethical practices in the social science research. We, therefore, recommend, among others that, universities and other higher institutions of learning should establish Research and Ethics Committees that would ensure that both students and researchers always obtain ethical clearance before embarking on any research involving human beings, especially. Also, the professional bodies in the Social Science Faculty should, as a matter of urgency establish ethical codes for its members regarding the conduct of social research.</strong></p> Julius Olugbenga OWOYEMI Edime YUNUSA Abdulkarim Sheidu HARUNA Ezekiel Olalekan IYANDA Momoh Alhassan MUHAMMAD ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2023-09-21 2023-09-21 6 09 01 12 10.5281/zenodo.8367844 Face Strategies in Ahmed Yerima’s Aetu <p><strong>The concept of face is highly significant in interactions given that iteither mares or promotes interpersonal relationships among individuals in interactions. The significance is witnessed in the large volume of scholarly works it drawsin linguistic scholarship. Although existing pragmatic investigations have examined potent aspects of face from diverse perspectives, it is rare to come across a work thatinvestigates face strategies in a feminist oriented play as Ahmed Yerima’s<em>Aetu</em> purposefully selected for it is rich in data. This study therefore sets out to examine the face strategies employed by Yerima to project his thematic preoccupations throughBrown and Levinson’s (1978/1987) face framework theory because of its easy adaptability and suitability to the data. We found that positive, negative, and bald on record are the face types that characterize the data. Thepositive face projects mutual respect, negative facesocial factors of power and social distance, andbald on recorddegree of imposition, all relative to Yoruba cultural ethics and practices. These are employed through designated linguistic choices as markers of politeness, respect and difference that are largely responsible for the responses that emanate from normal and extreme casesof politeness thereby showcasing the fact that the performance of politeness or impoliteness is foregrounded relative to emerging events and occurrences in the play. This studygives an insightinto the linguistic choices of politeness relative to the treatment of women in Yoruba culture thereby providing a template for the analysis of such inrelated contemporary African textual universes.</strong></p> Ade Adeniji Ige Nafiu Oyetunji Sunday ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2023-09-22 2023-09-22 6 09 13 26 10.5281/zenodo.8369639 INVESTMENT TRENDS OF VIETNAMESE YOUNG PEOPLE <p><strong>To examine the investment trends of Vietnamese young people, the research team surveyed the investment trends of young people living, studying, and working in Vietnam.

Woman and the girl child passed through many problems, obstacles and barriers to become an important member in the society. In the past, woman did not have any kind of rights, she was isolated, neglected and mistreated by man. By the coming of Feminism, the profile and the image woman have changed completely and from being a poppet in the hands of man she becomes a queen, president, artist and teacher…This paper examines the wishes, dreams and the ability of woman to change her position in the society not just as being a daughter, wife or a mother but rather as normal citizen with regular rights and duties. This paper produces a number of key findings that confirmed a significant development of woman participation in different in the society. The main conclusion drawn from this paper is that the Feminist efforts were efficient in many ways in which they brought a huge change in the position and the role of woman. They were able to remove the majority if not all the stereotypical pictures and to give her more importance in the society by giving her the political, social and economical rights.</strong></p> BIOKORO, Beauty Ogharen OBATA, Rita Obiageli GHAVWAN, Okeoghene Ogheneruemu ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2023-09-25 2023-09-25 6 09 44 54 10.5281/zenodo.8374984
