The Psychology  Unit of the Athens Institute for Education and Research (ATINER) organizes A Panel on Ethical Aspects of Conducting Research on Human Subjects, 29-31 May & 1 June 2017 as part of the 11th Annual International Conference on Psychology sponsored by the Athens Journal of Social Sciences.

The panel will focus on the discussion of conducting ethical research on human subjects, specifically the introduction of ethics into the research field with the Nuremberg Code, the Helsinki Declaration, and the Belmont Report principles: respect for persons, beneficence, and justice; as well as current upholding of said principles across nations. We welcome submissions on topics of national ethics research regulations, lack of universal approach to protecting human subjects, and challenging cases from the past. In addition, we would like to bring up a very pressing issue of data safety and cyber security when it comes to protecting research data. The goal of the panel is to raise awareness on the necessity of ethics incorporation into any research, share experience, and discuss ways of possible improvement in the field.

Its mission is to act as a forum where Academics and Researchers from all over the world can meet in Athens, in order to exchange ideas on their research, and to discuss future developments in their disciplines.

The organizing and hosting of International Conferences and Symposiums, the carrying out of Research, and the production of Publications are the basic activities of ATINER. Since 1995, ATINER has organized more than 400 International Conferences and other events, and has published close to 200 books.
