Recognising a growing trend, the University of Portsmouth’s Ethics & Governance Conference 2016 focused on the ethics of internet-mediated research.
Following on from this, the UK Research Integrity Office (UKRIO) has now published a guidance note on internet-mediated research. This guidance note provides useful advice for all researchers.
The guidance document can be viewed here.
If you have any questions about research ethics or governance please contact the University Ethics Advisor, Dr. Simon Kolstoe.
