Abstract

Ethics deals with moral principles. The ethical principles of autonomy, beneficence, non-maleficence and justice applies to biomedical research as much as it applies to other human activities. This chapter gives an overview of the ethics of planning, conducting, and reporting of research. It discusses the basic principles of collection, use and interpretation of research data. It touches upon areas pertaining to the protection of research subjects and ethical principles governing the use of human and animal in research. The concept of research misconduct and importance of responsible conduct in research is also discussed. Education in research ethics is essential for all scientists and researchers as it equips them to assess, interpret and apply ethical principles in different situations.
