Top 5 ethical considerations when you conduct research

Did you know that often researchers are unaware that they are flouting ethical norms of conducting research? Research ethics are moral principles that guide researchers to conduct and report research without deception. Practicing ethical guidelines while conducting research is essential to establish a study’s validity. If misconduct is detected in a published research paper it can get retracted. Moreover, any work that is built upon the findings would get discredited.

This infographic includes the most common ethical considerations that must be considered when a study involves human subjects or experimental animals. It is aimed at helping researchers develop best practices so that they can publish ethically and avoid rejection or retraction due to misconduct.
