Legislative Impact on Academic Ethics and Integrity

Abstract

Any research project starts from a brilliant idea based on a well-defined goal, translated into a research question without knowing the answer. The purpose of each research must lead to concrete social values, with minimal but legitimate risks for the participants. The dimension of each research actually leads to the application of results from fundamental research, in well-defined situations, for the construction of technologies, which bring plus value at the level of knowledge. If, from a social viewpoint, research entails useful knowledge, from an ethical point of view, the fair use of financial resources is considered, given that the research is publicly funded, with the greatest possible social utility, with implications enlarged, extended on different research topics. Any research topic is characterized by clarity, highlighting the empirical purpose of the research so that it can reflect the size perspective of the researcher, of the evaluator of the research project but also of the final beneficiary of the research. Starting from the purpose of the doctoral thesis, one can demonstrate that the research range is tremendous, including theoretical objectives for the improvement of the research field but also in the alternative through the application of theoretical innovations meant to open aspects of public policy changes. At a regional level, the research is meant to bring efficiency, through applied policies. In order for these to define their specific contributions, in order to be applicable, the researcher can select the sources that may be useful, the size in which they can be collected, distinguishing between research with regional impact, but also pseudo-research in order to be published and to have a credit academic an academic credit, taking into account that in the academic space it is necessary to highlight the research topics through the publishing activity.
