n South African Computer Journal - The ethical researcher : festschrift : dedicated to Derrick Kourie




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.
