Why Ethics Matter: Ethical Research

Nick Barter, Griffith University

Why are ethics so important in research?

We each have different morals, shaped by our individual upbringing, culture and life experiences. These diverse moral codes result in different perceptions of what’s right, fair and reasonable. This is where a research code of ethics comes in.

On this course, you’ll explore significant events in history that have shaped ethical conduct today. You’ll also explore the key principles most codes of ethics are based on.

Looking at case studies, you’ll examine the components of a research ethics application. Finally, you’ll discover how to protect people’s rights during your own research process.

This course is aimed at anyone interested in ethics and research. It may be of particular interest to people who are undertaking a research project related to their profession or area of study.
