In the planning phase of the research, it is very important to carefully go through guidelines of ethics. In other words, it is important to ensure that research is beneficial for people and participants’ dignity, rights and autonomy are respected and upheld. Information about ethics and how to do ethical research can be found from the CO:RE Compass for Research Ethics.

The team at the Faculty of Information Technology and Communication of TUNI identifies, develops and provides access to resources on qualitative, quantitative and mixed research methods together with evaluating their validity in research practice. These resources are collated in the CO:RE methods toolkit that cross-references resources from the evidence base, the compass for research ethics, and the theory toolkit, to give users tools to apply to their individual research contexts.
