UKCGE’s first Resources Lite guidance detailing good practice in Research Ethics has been published. 

First Lite’ resource published in Research Ethics

The Resources Lite series aims to deliver practical insights and support for practitioners across the postgraduate sector. The pamphlet features guidance for researchers and organisations, key principles in Research Ethics, links and references to more material and also what members recommend as good practice in Research Ethics.

Alongside a pamphlet, Dr Andrew Rawnsley has described why Research Ethics is Important, where further guidance can be found, and what is good practice in Research Ethics through a short video.

The release of the Research Ethics guidance coincides with the forthcoming Good Practice in Research Ethics workshop taking place next week in London, of which there are a limited spaces remaining.

Dr Andrew Rawnsley who led production of the Research Ethics guidance and hosts the Council’s Research Ethics Workshop next week said,

I really enjoyed pulling this guidance together. I hope it is a useful resource for colleagues to think about how Research Ethics sits in their respective institution. I also want to thank Lynn and Julie for their very useful comments. Finally, I look forward to welcoming delegates to this year’s Research Ethics workshop at the School of Advanced Study, London next week.”

Ben Massey, UKCGE Marketing and Liaison Officer who worked with Dr Rawnsley and the UKCGE membership to develop the series said,

Members were very clear in wanting the council to put forward simple and practical guidance in line with specific issues. We wanted to pull practice together and allow adaptation to suit institutional focus. We invite any members who want to support the development of future guidance in related areas to contact the UKCGE office.”
