This webinar from the Sustainable and Responsible Business SIG introduces BAM community to the contemporary dialogues in the area of research ethics. Although ethics can be taken for granted in our research and scholarly activities, it is important that management scholars, ECRs and doctoral students are abreast with the latest developments in the field thus ensuring professional integrity and high quality of the research outputs.

The recent and fast-paced developments in the areas such as data protection, research with vulnerable participants, and increasing use of internet and social media channels in research, warrants re-examination of our research skills from the ethics standpoint. For the BAM community, as a flagship scholarly community in management, attention to research ethics and the continuous development of professional expertise in this area are critical to ensuring quality, reputation and credibility of the work we do.

The webinar features the world-class speakers on research ethics in social sciences including representation from Social Research Association (UK), Associate of Australasian Human Research Ethics Consultancy (Australia) and major funding bodies, Economic and Social Research Council and UKRI. Webinar participants will have an opportunity to speak to a panel of experts throughout the event and explore the most up-to-date guidance for research ethics in management research and funding applications.
