Ethics in Engineering Research
Ethics generally refers to a set of rules distinguishing acceptable and unacceptable conduct, distinguishing right from wrong, or wise aphorisms like the sayings of Chanakya. Most people learn such norms in their formative years , but moral development continues through different stages of growth. Although everyone recognizes some common ethical norms, but there is difference in interpretation and application. Ethical principles can be used for evaluation, proposition, or interpretation of laws . Although ethics are not laws, but laws often follow ethics because ethics are our shared values.
