Research in Nursing Ethics
Ethics in nursing research, also referred to as scientific integrity, is concerned with the principles and practices of good science that aim to promote the generation of sound and ethically defensible knowledge. Ethics is fundamental in order for the protection of society as well as good research practice. The principles are developed within the framework of the scientific community and are derived from the field of ethics, a branch of philosophy. A number of practices are subsumed under this general heading; together, they address the duties and obligations of scientists toward science and society, fellow scientists, and their students.
