Abstract

The present article deals with the application of moral principles into the research, researcher’s social role and the contribution of higher education to the formation of ethically sensitive and socially responsible young researchers. Through the analysis of the above issues, an attempt is made to answer the question whether the terms "ethics" and "research" are compatible or incompatible. From the negotiation of the matter it follows that the concepts of "ethics" and "research" are not only compatible but interrelated. Research without the application of ethical principles lacks quality, integrity, social responsibility, and becomes dangerous, both for the researcher and humanity.
