ABSTRACT

Objective : The purpose of this study was to understand the perception of researchers about research ethics. Methods : This study used a previous study on research ethics performed by Seong et al. (2011). The survey’scontents largely consist of the general characteristics of the subjects, the general categories of the researchethics, and the perceptions of the researchers. Among the 150 survey copies that were finally distributed, 85were collected, which is a collection rate of 56.0%. The variables of frequency and percentage, along with achi-square test, were used to identify the subjects’ general characteristics and whether they received ethicseducation. In addition, a cross-tabulation analysis was performed to measure the level of research ethics amongthe researchers. Results : The researchers showed a high level of perception regarding research ethics at a rate of 98.2%. However,their experience with education on research ethics remained at 44.7%. The researchers exhibited a high level ofagreement regarding the opening of information on the subjects of their experiments. However, their level ofcorrespondence was low among the questions for each category. Conclusion : Researchers having a higher awareness of research ethics have stricter criteria. In the future, thisresearch on occupational therapeutic ethics will be used as basic data for additional studies.
