The purpose of this paper is to highlight certain shortcomings in the way many researchers in ICT undertake their research. The approach taken is based on ethics - specifically, deontological ethics. Using this as a basis, it is argued that many researchers behave unethically, and it is shown what it means to be an ethical researcher. The paper aims to make a contribution to the field of ICT research by sensitising researchers about the shortcomings in their approach to research.
