Teaching of Ethical Practice in Research
In order to promote self-regulation of the research process, it would be helpful if discussion of the Guidelines for Ethical Research Practice could be incorporated into the undergraduate and postgraduate teaching programmes. At undergraduate level, ethical issues in research should be incorporated in the second and third year curriculum. At postgraduate level, ethical practice in research could best be discussed as part of the School’s internal research training. Tutors and supervisors should ensure ethical practice in research is discussed with all undergraduate and postgraduate students who are intending to undertake research involving, or potentially impacting upon, human subjects.
