Ethics FAQs


Ethical review is not about preventing or making it difficult to carry out research, but about helping the researcher think through the ethical issues and how to deal with them. The risks and benefits for participants and also the researchers are considered. The principles of good research practice encourage those involved in research to consider the wider consequences of their research and engage with practical, ethical and intellectual challenges inherent in high quality research.
