The ethics self-assessment process aims to offer researchers an easy-to-use framework to review the ethics of their projects throughout the research cycle. The self-assessment provides a timely means to identify ethical issues and shape future discussions. The process aims to support an accurate and consistent estimation of the “ethical risks” of research proposals.
The self-assessment form and guidance can be found in the Downloads section on the right. The Data Ethics team can support you when completing the self-assessment by offering further guidance, advice and training. Please contact us, at Data.Ethics@statistics.gov.uk.
