Abstract [en]

Most accounts of the ethical problems facing researchers across a broad spectrum of research fields come from ethicists, ethics committees and specialists committed to the study of ethics in human research. In contrast, this study reports on the ethical questions that researchers, themselves, report facing in their everyday practice. Fifty-five Swedish researchers contributed 109 examples of ethical dilemmas, conflicts and problems in research. They were all researchers at the post-doctoral level in the fields of medicine, the humanities, education and social sciences, who devoted at least 50% of their working hours to research. They reported issues they face before, during, and after gathering data. Their range of issues is broader than generally discussed and point to the importance of researchers’ ethical sensitivity.
