Course description

The course is an introductory course in research ethics and good research practice. Ethical reasoning has a general character but has different meaning and has different implications depending on the character of the research. The course deals with general issues within research ethics, where both norms in science and fundamental ethical perspectives are discussed. Based on this general orientation, the course deals with external and internal research ethics, that is, the role of research in society and its responsibility towards those who are affected by the research's implementation and results. The course participants are trained to identify and handle research ethical issues in others as well as in their own research.
