According to ”Act on Ethics and Integrity in Research” entered into force in July 2007 research institutes (universities etc.) have the primary responsibility for preventing and handling allegations concerning research misconduct. However, the mentioned law introduced a new body to investigate research misconduct: The National Commission for the Investigation of Research Misconduct (Granskingsutvalget).
The research ethics library offers more than 80 specialised articles on topics linked to research ethics, written by a large number of different experts and professionals. Taken as a whole, the articles shall serve as an introduction to key topics in the area of research ethics. Each article contains additional links to further resources.
Its purpose is to help engender reflection and debate, rather than to create an encyclopaedia or provide universally applicable answers.
The perspectives and viewpoints presented in the FBIB articles do not necessarily reflect those of The Norwegian National Research Ethics Committees; all authors are responsible for their own perspectives.
