  • Truth, honesty, openness. Research should create new knowledge and it should be honest, open, with integrity.

  • Freedom in choosing research topics, methodology, the publication of results.

  • Quality. Research should be of high quality. Researchers should have the necessary competence and expertise.

  • Voluntary informed consent. Research participants should participate voluntarily in a study and should be informed about different aspects of it.

  • Confidentiality. Research participants should be entitled to have their personal data confidential.
