What is Meant by Research Ethics?
"Research ethics is specifically interested in the analysis of ethical issues that are raised when people are involved as participants in research."
The three objectives of ethical research:
- To protect human participants.
- To ensure that research is conducted in a way that serves interests of individuals, groups and/or society as a whole.
- To examine specific research activities and projects for their ethical soundness, looking at issues such as the management of risk, protection of confidentiality and the process of informed consent.
From What is Research Ethics? by Nancy Walton, Ph.D.
