Background: Research ethics involve requirements on daily work, the protection of dignity of subjects and the publication of the information in the research. However, when nurses participate in research they have to cope with three value systems; society; nursing and science which may be in conflict with the values of subjects, communities, and societies and create tensions and dilemmas in nursing.

Science and ethics
This book reflects academically on important and relevant natural scientific disciplines, important technologies and related media to determine and communicate the moral issues and challenges within those specific fields of study, and how to deal with them morally and from a multidimensional South African context. It aims to add scientific, technological and ethical value, locally and globally, by reflecting mainly from the viewpoint of a specific scholars, writing about the most pressing moral issues or challenges raised by problems within their specific field of study. It is written mainly from a qualitative methodological perspective, including autobiographical and participatory views. The co-authors present in respective chapters their research systematically and intersectionally, based on profound theoretical analysis and reasoning. Current research in the basic and implied sciences and technologies requires sound ethical practice based on a defensible moral stance. Moral norms, in our view, are deeply grounded and evolved convictions about justice and injustice, right and wrong, good and bad.
Less than years ago, science was a dangerous business. In , the Italian monk Giordano Bruno was sentenced to death and burned at the stake because he believed in free thinking in philosophy and science. But while scientific progress has been rapid and astonishing, it is still disturbing for those people who feel excluded from the debate surrounding the application of science in new technologies and products. Furthermore, as scientific progress becomes increasingly fundamental to society, it is constantly challenging if not completely clashing with long-held beliefs concerning our ethical values. It is, therefore, necessary to conduct ethical discussions in order to adapt the use of scientific knowledge—namely new forms of technology—to a general context that is in agreement with the basic principles of our civilisation. Scientists should be concerned about the use of scientific knowledge and they should address the ensuing ethical questions, both in general terms and in terms of their own work.
Moral Issues in the Natural Sciences and Technologies
Research and innovation in emerging technologies can have great benefits but also raise ethical and social concerns. The current discourse on Responsible Research and Innovation RRI is a novel attempt to come to conceptual and practical ways of dealing with such concerns. In order to effectively understand and address possible ethical and social issues, stakeholders need to have an understanding of what such issues might be. This article explores ethical issues related to the field of emerging information and communication technologies ICTs. Based on a foresight study of ICT that led to the identification of eleven emerging technologies, we outline the field of ethical and social issues of these technologies. This overview of possible problems can serve as an important sensitising device to these issues.
Reilly Center for Science, Technology and Values has announced its inaugural list of emerging ethical dilemmas and policy issues in science and technology for The Reilly Center explores conceptual, ethical and policy issues where science and technology intersect with society from different disciplinary perspectives. Its goal is to promote the advancement of science and technology for the common good. The center generated its inaugural list with the help of Reilly fellows, other Notre Dame experts and friends of the center. The center aimed to present a list of items for scientists and laypeople alike to consider in the coming months and years as new technologies develop.
This understanding of the 'other' and values is also applied to the discussion of ethical issues relating to minority world ('developed') country.
Conclusions: Incorporating Ethics into Science and Technology Policy
Science and Technology Governance and Ethics pp Cite as. This chapter provides integrative conclusions and policy recommendations deriving from the analyses of ethics perspectives in the book. It describes the state-of-art in ethics in Europe, India and China in terms of values systems, public debates, advisory bodies and public engagement initiatives. It further provides suggestions for the mainstreaming of socio-ethical analysis in the three regions, paying particular attention to the different innovation needs evident in Europe on one hand and in India and China on the other.
Science and Technology Governance and Ethics pp Cite as. Ethics is viewed mainly from the perspective of lay morality as it is evident in analyses of public debates and public perceptions research. In this respect, the most significant influence shaping the content and direction of ethics derives from cultural norms and social values. The incorporation of ethics in policy making takes two distinct but interconnected routes: one via official advisory structures and the other via lay debates. Additional influences on policy by civil society organisations and private sector lobbying activities are also evident.
