Research ethics are essentially based on human rights and serve as one of many benchmarks for the researcher’s professional role. Different research areas have different challenges from research ethics, but often included are issues on risks of harm or violation of people or animals. Informed consent and data management are usually essential tools for handling research-ethical problems. Concerning animals, their suffering or use of them should instead be minimised or completely replaced.
