Ethics refers to the code of moral principles of a society that relate to appropriate behaviour, and is therefore relevant to all members of any society, as well as to the institutions of that society. Ethically appropriate behaviour, which includes the way is to be conducted, relates to all actions considered by a society, either explicitly (by law) or implicitly (by accepted practice), to be right, correct, and/or proper actions. Therefore, ethical research practice applies to all members of all faculties, departments, centres, and groups in the UM; and is especially relevant to anyone, whether a faculty member, staff, or student, who conducts research of any kind in any field of study.
