The FeKoM project

Research ethics - the respectful and appreciative treatment of all persons involved in empirical research projects - is an essential component of good scientific practice. Research ethics refers to legal regulations (such as freedom of science or informational self-determination), considers ethical aspects as well as scientific research methodology.

The FeKoM project aimed to support the formation of an ethics-sensitive attitude in communication and media research. Against the background of the steadily growing complexity of research processes and the increased importance of reflecting on research ethics the topic is becoming increasingly important. The project pursued the goal of formulating evidence-based recommendations for applied research ethics in quantitative studies (and its communication in teaching) and implementing them within the scientific community.
