Research Policies

All researchers should be aware of the basic ethical principles, policies and procedures that safeguard the wellbeing of research subjects and prevent irresponsible conduct. That is because ignorance of policies deliberated to protect research subjects does not shield researchers from research misconduct.

Every stage in a research project, starting from the project proposal up to the submission of the results for peer review, needs to reflect integrity in order to be considered ethical.

If one part of a research project is debatable or conducted unethically, it would jeopardize the integrity of the entire project. Therefore, it is the responsibility of every researcher to read and comprehend the research policies and guidelines set forth to ensure straight research practices.

To demonstrate research ethics is to exhibit the highest standards of ethical conduct in every aspect of the research project including the conduction of research, submission of applications and proposals, and the publications reported by BAU academic staff. This ethical conduct is to include the respect for human rights and is to guarantee the protection of human and animal subject involved in the research project.
