Consult Code of Ethics

What is Ethics in research and why is it important? Are there rules for distinguishing between right and wrong in professional conduct?

Research ethics are the norms for conduct that distinguish between acceptable and unacceptable behavior. The norms about honesty and responsibility in scholarship, showing consideration for others, for other people’s values  and respect for other people’s property.
The Delft University of Technology has set guidelines down in a ‘Code of Ethics TU Delft’ (PDF). It   formulates the ideals, responsibilities and rights that should be taken as guidelines for everyone who is part of TU Delft: the academic staff, support staff, guests, and students. The document has been expressly designed as a ‘living document’, which can be continually updated in response to new insights or topical issues.
