Role of Research Supervisors to Implement Ethical Practices in Research of Social Sciences
In social sciences, research supervision with ethical considerations is crucial at universities. This study is designed to identify the gap between research students and supervisors in implementation of ethical research standards. Being a survey type study, population comprised of the research supervisors at public sector universities. A sample of 208 supervisors was purposively selected from eight departments. A self-developed questionnaire was used as a tool of research. It is assumed that researchers encounter ethical issues due to inadequate preparation and a lack of research abilities, and as a result, they engage in unethical practices. The findings also suggest that a general understanding of research ethics and its implementation may impact the study's value. This study makes recommendations for raising student understanding of research policies and provides statistical evidence for developing policies and guidelines to prevent unethical behavior at university level.
