This Code of Human Research Ethics lays out a set of general principles that are applicable to all research contexts and which are intended to cover all research with human participants.

The attached document, written by the The BPS Working Party on Ethical Guidelines for Psychological Research, is designed to clarify the conditions under which psychological research involving humans can take place and to inform the professional and ethical judgement of researchers.

Members of The Society should also ensure to consult The BPS Code of Ethics and Conduct, which lays out the primary ethical principles which The Society expects its members to abide by.
