8 Questions to ask yourself to help explore ethical values before making decisions. 1. Have I thought if action is right or wrong? 2. Will I be proud to tell of my action? 3. Am I willing for everyone to act like me? 4. Will my decision cause harm? 5. Will my actions violate the law? The Ultimate Ethics Standard is … You! Individual Values – Self Examination The Ultimate Ethics Standard is … You! Individual Values – Self Examination

9 What is Research Ethics? Shared Values
