Case studies are a useful way of illustrating problems of ethics and integrity in research in terms of the specific ‘contexts’ in which the problems arose. The generic values, principles and standards we outlined at the start have to be ‘interpreted’ by researchers when in the field, in the laboratory or in the archives. In other words, the context within which ethical decisions have to be taken can vary considerably. So much so that the same principles may be interpreted to take different actions depending on the researchers’ understandings of how they should be applied in a specific setting. We offer some links to sources of case studies and some detailed ones that were written specifically for the PRO-RES project.
