Translated title of the contribution: Ethical issues underlying research work

Eduardo Duque, António Calheiros

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review



The ethical foundations of social research essentially focus on the process and application of research. Closely associated with these two sequential and holistic stages, we have issues related to the integrity of science, the integrity of the researcher, and social responsibility.It is about the process and the application of research, related to these interconnected and transversal aspects, such as the aspects that must be observed in the integrity of the researcher, the necessary conditions for the integrity of science as well as the social responsibility of the researcher himself that we intend to reflect next.We can conclude that, as an ethical principle that shapes his conduct, the researcher must guide his research in order to promote the values of freedom, individual security, diversity, equity and solidarity, helping to find and cement a demanding, democratic and collaborative institutional framework, that guarantees the respect for human rights, the rule of law at the international level, democracy and citizen participation in public affairs. It should also, in a regulation in the service of the citizen, promote business activities that respect the principles of responsibility, effectiveness and subsidiarity.Keywords: Ethical issues, Social research, methodology.
