Principles of Ethical Research

How do we ensure research is conducted in such a way that it is safe for participants, the findings are valid and research participants are not exposed to any risk? All research must abide by a set of ethical principles to ensure research safety and integrity. To apply research ethics it is first necessary to understand research as a specific activity that differs from other forms of inquiry. It is also vital to understand the ethics and different ethical frameworks affecting behaviour and the conduct of research. The principles that guide good research process and the underlying ethical considerations need to be embedded in the conduct of the research and the behaviour of the researcher.
