Event Details

This major conference and workshop event will build on the outcomes of the Academy of Social Sciences’ 2013 series of Ethics Symposia and consider important debates around Principles, Values and Standards.

The one-day event is organised by the Academy of Social Sciences in partnership with the British Library, with support from the British Sociological Association, the British Psychological Society, the Economic and Social Research Council and the Open University. It will consolidate the discussions held during Spring 2013 among representatives of learned societies and other organisations across the academic and research communities.

The symposia papers and discussions have been reported in a Professional Briefing which can be accessed at www.acss.org.uk/Ethics/EthicsProjectIntro.htm. Conference participants will define the next steps towards sharing approaches to research ethics principles and practice across the social sciences.
