About this course

This is an introductory course in research ethics within the social sciences and humanities and it is open to doctoral students, supervisors and researchers at Linköping University. The course covers research ethical problems and concepts, such as autonomy and informed consent, scientific fraud and misconduct and the researcher's responsibility for the consequences of his/her research. Research ethical declarations and Swedish legislation on research ethics are introduced. Field-specific research problems are discussed as well as research ethical problems experienced by the course participants. After completing the course, the student should be able to identify and describe common research ethical problems, suggest solutions to the problems and justify the solutions by means of basic ethical principles. The student should also have proficiency in filling in an application for ethical trial of research. The course will mainly be taught at campus Valla, Linköping, with some lectures/seminars taught via Zoom.
