Code of Ethics for Research

On project RAPID-MIX, Goldsmiths EAVI team had a task assigned which has been recently completed. The main outcome is a report on the methodological framework to be adopted, based on User-Centred Design, which involved choosing and adopting a code of research ethics. This involved going through some of the most relevant codes of research, such as:

We decided to adopt the last one since it seemed the most encompassing and adequate to international collaborative research, and provided an extensive coverage and guidelines for good practice. These claim for values such as integrity, uniformity, fairness and confidentiality applied to guidelines such as:

  • Data practices for availability and access
  • Research procedures
  • Publication-related, review and editorial conduct

Overall, it provides a great ethical framework to work on and one of the fundamental aspects of any serious research work.
