TSRF Guide to applying ethical research principles


This guide meets a need identified by Scotland’s Third Sector Research Forum (TSRF) for a resource to support research active third sector organisations to navigate ethical considerations. It is written for researchers working in the third sector to help you know what to do and how, to ensure your research participants and you are safe during the research process. 

It was launched for consultation at the Third Sector Research Forum conference on 17 February 2021 and finalised in June 2021.

We are interested to hear from third sector researchers using the guide. We will publish an accompanying document which will include case studies about how the guide is being used in the third sector. The case studies will be presented at an event in February 2022.
