Ethics in research are very important when you're going to conduct an experiment.
Don't have time for it all now? No problem, save it as a course and come back to it later.
Ethics should be applied on all stages of research, such as planning, conducting and evaluating a research project.
The first thing to do before designing a study is to consider the potential cost and benefits of the research.
We evaluate the cost and benefits for most decisions in life, whether we are aware of it or not.
This can be quite a dilemma in some experiments. Stem cell research is one example of an area with difficult ethical considerations.
As a result, stem cell research is restricted in many countries, because of the major and problematic ethical issues.
Basically, research must follow all regulations given, and also anticipate possible ethical problems in their research.
Competition is an important factor in research, and may be both a good thing and a bad thing.
Whistleblowing is one mechanism to help discover misconduct in research.
