The Covid-19 pandemic has brought about significant changes to social research practices. Social distancing and restrictions to travel and access to sites have disrupted research projects and brought about adaptations to methods, introducing multiple and interrelated ethical challenges. The pandemic has raised moral and ethical issues about society in general and has affected everyone involved in research studies – researchers and participants alike. This guide draws on recent literature and workshop discussions to unpack the complex ethical dimensions of conducting research during Covid-19 to provide insight, guidance and ideas.

The guide is part of our 'Changing Research Practice: Undertaking social science research in the context of Covid-19' project.
