PIENAAR, Jaco. Ethics in economic and management sciences: A researcher's resource. S. Afr. j. econ. manag. sci. [online]. 2010, vol.13, n.2, pp.177-189. ISSN 2222-3436.

In an international research climate of increasingly demanding ethical review, based on a biomedical model, reflection on best practices in social, behavioural and economic science research is necessary. It is widely believed that these sciences cannot be held to the same practical requirements as those for biomedical research, although the principles of ethical research are surely universal. This article considers the ethical requirements, principles and guidelines directing research in the social, behavioural and economic sciences, recognised in the national and international arena. By means of a systematic review of available best practices, it is anticipated that general guidelines for social, behavioural and economic science research could be developed and offered to researchers in these fields. Specific consideration is given to the unique characteristics of social, behavioural and economic science research.

Palabras clave : Guidelines; social sciences; human sciences; behavioural sciences; economic sciences; ethics; ethical; social desirability; deception.
