Guidelines

Declaration

The Publication Integrity & Ethics and the contributors to these guidelines acknowledge that many institutes and universities around the world have their own guidelines that deal with research ethics. These establishments expect their researchers to follow their guidelines and comply with them. The Publication Integrity & Ethics confirms that its guidelines on research ethics should not replace any existing guidelines of any establishment nor be followed by any of its researchers. However, P.I.E. is happy for any institute or university in the world, with existing guidelines on research ethics, to adapt part or all of the P.I.E. guidelines if the head of that establishment decides to do so and proper acknowledgement of P.I.E. is given.

The Publication Integrity & Ethics recognise that many institutes and universities in the developing world lacks guidelines on research ethics. P.I.E. is happy for any institute or university, who lack these guidelines, to construct their own guidelines based on this document as long as the head of that institute or university approves this decision and proper acknowledgement of P.I.E. is given.

Please note that you may require contacting the Medical, Dental or Pharmacy Council or the Department of Health in your country to seek approval before using these ethics research guidelines.
