Ethics in primary research (focus groups, interviews and surveys)

This third short guide from ECU’s research team, part of our research and data briefing series, focuses on research ethics.

The publication aims to assist equality and diversity practitioners in conducting focus groups, interviews and surveys that are underpinned by ethical principles and considerations.

With practical examples of ethical approaches to all stages of the research process, from research design to data analysis and reporting, our new short guide covers:

  • why research ethics?
  • the core principles of social research ethics
  • research ethics in practice
