The Research Ethics Guidebook

  Created on Tuesday, 21 Feb 2017. Posted in Toolkit/Database

The Research Ethics Guidebook is designed as a resource for social science researchers - those early in their careers, as well as more experienced colleagues. It aims to help researchers find their way through the variety of regulatory processes and procedures that can apply to social science research - signposting to more detailed information along the way, and acting as a prompt for reflection and questioning at all stages of the research process.

Covers the following areas:

  • Research topics and funders
  • Writing your proposal
  • Building ethics into the research design
  • Receiving funding
  • Permission and approval
  • Applying for ethics approval
  • Ethics committee responses
  • Conducting your research
  • Reporting and dissemination
  • Signposting to other resources
