Research Skills: Respect and Confidentiality

Respect and Confidentiality - skills required of excellent PhD or doctoral students

Cloud created by:

12 November 2010

An excellent researcher at doctoral or PhD level:

  • Within own research respects the right of participants to confidentiality and anonymity.
  • Respects colleagues.

Looking ahead, a doctoral student can aim to become an excellent early-career researcher who:

  • Advises peers and less experienced researchers about respect, confidentiality and anonymity.
  • Encourages others to respect colleagues; challenges those who do not respect others.

Note: These skills are identified in the UK Researcher Development Framework – where they appear as C1.5 Professional Conduct: Respect and Confidentiality
