What is Research Ethics?

Research Ethics involves a lot, ranging from observation, participation to experimental subjects of all kinds of studies related to humans. The category of discussion also includes various disputes of public morality and establishment of norms which may be involved. 

The main purpose of research ethics is to protect research participants, for fear that their rights and interests are neglected or damaged, and that they probably take big risks both physically and mentally because of the conflicts of potential benefits between plan executors and participants as well as other complex factors, like the fact that researchers hold more information than participants.
