The Business and Management Research Institute (BMRI) handles ethical issues in relation to the research (funded or otherwise) conducted by its academic staff members and students with the help of BMRI Ethics Committee. Research in the field of business and management is required to be conducted with due considerations to good research practice and ethics, including responsibility, integrity, accountability, honesty, conflict of interest, plagiarism, privacy and confidentiality.
Research conducted within BMRI should adhere to established principles of ethical practice of the University and respected professional organisations in the field of management. These are outlined in the following links. Please note that this list is not exhaustive.
Any queries can be sent to BMRI Secretary at BMRI@beds.ac.uk
All research undertaken within BMRI by staff and students, whether primary (involving fieldwork with human beings) or secondary (involving work which draws on already published sources), requires ethical approval and details of how to make an ethics application can be found at Research Ethics
