|Code of Ethics and Guidance on Ethics|
The requirement of a Code of Ethics for ISE members was propounded quite some time back by one of our senior members, but nothing was finalized at that time. Now the issue has become of current importance, with many ergonomics associations adopting and publishing such a Code of Ethics for their members. ISE should be proactive in this regard.
Similarly, the need for a Guidance document on Ethics was recently raised by our former Vice President. It was felt that while many institutions have well developed ethical approval systems, there are some ergonomics researchers who are in need of guidance in this regard, especially for publication in journals.
Hence with the help of our former President, Dr.P.K.Nag (who was himself associated with the development of the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) Ethical Guidelines), two draft documents have been prepared. These are now published for your review, suggestions, and comments.
Following this comment and suggestions process, the final draft (after incorporation of Members' comments and suggestions) would be submitted to the General Body for approval at the next AGM.
The first draft documents (rev 0) are available for download. Kindly review the same, and give your suggestions, and comments.
