  1. 1. Ethical Issues in Data Collection Umm-e-Rooman Yaqoob
  2. 2. Ethics • Ethics is the branch of philosophy that involves systematizing, defending, andrecommending concepts of right andwrong conduct. The term ethics is derived from the Ancient Greek word ‘ethikos’ (habit, “custom”). The branch of philosophy axiology comprises the sub-branches of Ethics andaesthetics, each concerned with concepts of value.

  4. 4. Major areas of study The three major areas of study withinethics are: • Meta-ethics, concerningthe theoretical meaningand reference of moral propositions, and how theirtruth values (if any) can be determined. • Normative ethics, concerningthe practical means of determining a moral course of action. • Applied ethics, concerningwhata person is obligated to do in a specific situation or a particular domain of action.
  5. 5. Ethical Decision Making in Research • Althoughcodes, policies, andprincipals are very important and useful, like any set of rules, they do not cover every situation, they often conflict, andthey require considerable interpretation. It is therefore important for researchers to learn howto interpret, assess, and apply various research rules and how to make decisionsand toact in various situations. The vast majority of decisions involvethe straightforward application of ethical rules.

  8. 8. • not plagiarizethe work of others • not skew their conclusions based on funding. • not commit science fraud, falsifyresearch or otherwise conduct scientific misconduct • not use the position as a peer reviewer to give sham peer reviews to punish or damage fellow scientists. • Basically,research must follow allregulations 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.
