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
