Why Ethics Matter: Ethical Research (FutureLearn)
Explore the role ethics plays in research and why it's so important. 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.
