Ethical guidelines for FutureArcticLives
Learn about our ethical considerations that will guide the research conducted by FutureArcticLives.
Compliance with ethical standards is becoming increasingly important in scientific practice. Universities and individual scientists, associations and other institutes establish regulations and ethics, advisory boards.
Today, most scientific journals require that submitted research has achieved ethical approval before an article can be accepted for publication. Also, the communities and indigenous groups that are the research subjects are increasingly insisting on self-determination and sustainable research practices and issuing their own guidelines for researchers.
With that in mind, the FutureArcticLives project has summarised the ethical considerations, available guidelines, and official regulations relevant to social science research in countries with so-called Arctic regions and populations. The document synthesises and presents the ethical considerations that will guide the research conducted by FutureArcticLives. Bringing this together, the hope is that this overview will be helpful to future projects in the same or related locations.
