Student Research Ethics

This is a companion resource to the British Association for the Study of Religions Ethics Guidelines and includes some introductory material that supports student engagement with these guidelines. It is designed by students and aimed at students. We hope it helps you to think about the ethical implications of your research. This resource was designed by Natasha Jones, an undergraduate student at the University of Leeds, in 2020.

Natasha said of her work on this project:

Before this project, I had only really engaged with research ethics through a fieldwork module in my first year. It was challenging at times, in part due to the pandemic, but involving myself in the nuances of research ethics was a very valuable experience. The opportunity to use that knowledge to create a resource that could be useful for undergraduates, like myself, is something I have found incredibly rewarding.
