DIGETIK was closed down by the end of 2022

DIGETIK was a forum consisting of information on ethical challenges in digital research within the humanities and social sciences.

The vast majority of humanities scholars use digital technologies in their research activities, be it as archival or data collection tools, publishing channels, research objects or communication platforms. This usage of digital technologies leads to various ethical considerations – and existing guidelines are not necessarily useful in their current form.

Examples of new ethical questions and challenges related to digital research could be protection of research participants’ privacy, issues related to the distinction between what is perceived as private and public, how or when to obtain informed consent, how to present data associated with publishing, how to store data, how to share data or research results with other researchers and copyright regulations.
