Should Researchers Protect the Good Name and Reputation of Institutions in Which Research Is Done?
Uys, L. R.
South African Journal of Higher Education, v22 n2 p457-465 2008
The article explores the issue of protecting the good name and reputation of institutions and organisations in which research is being done. It explores current ethical codes in this regard, as well as legal provision for such protection. The issue of balancing the right of the researchers to share information about institutions in which research is done, with the need for organisations to protect their good names is discussed, and recommendations will be made with regard to the inclusion of this aspect of research ethics into the brief of ethics committees and the way in which organisations can be protected without jeopardising the aims of research. (Contains 2 notes.)
