Description

If you are doing research with people or animals, you will have to engage with formal systems of ethical governance. Whether or not this is the case, you may have an interest in ensuring your doctoral research is ethical, or even be studying ethics itself. This e-book introduces the theory and practice of ethical research and outlines your options, from a tick-box approach to formal ethics to a fully integrated ethical approach to all stages of your doctoral research.

Introduction

Research ethics has a reputation for being dry and boring. There are two main reasons why this reputation is undeserved. The first is that ethics is about how to deal fairly and well with the infinite variety of combinations of people and other factors that researchers may encounter in their work. The second is that ethics changes over time, such that what was deemed ethical once – whether long ago or recently – may no longer be seen as ethical.
