How can I apply the toolkit to my research journey?

Ethical practice is important at all stages of the research journey.

We have created in-depth templates for each stage of the research journey to help support reflection on potential challenges and solutions.

Please also see some guiding principles and values here.

There are case examples available here to give you an idea of how the toolkit may be applied.

A blank case analysis template is available here for use in your own research.

How can I contribute to the development of the toolkit?

Please don’t hesitate to get in touch with the team by email at or tweet us at @E_A_G_R. We welcome feedback and suggestions on how to continue developing the toolkit. Check out our Events page to attend any upcoming workshops with the team.
