Ethics and Researchers

We have a rather high number of publications related to ethics and translation/interpretation and related to translators/interpreters, but hardly any related to research/researchers in Translation Studies (TS).  However, the ways research is today used and reported in the different media and in different industries, post-truth, big data, data-centrism, the challenging digital technologies, including neural MT and remote working conditions, the financial constraints on the universities, the double-bind imposed on publishing, etc. raise sensible questions about ethics for researchers in our field.

Therefore, you are invited to take part in the study on research ethics issues in TS, which seeks to find out how researchers in the field of TS understand and apply the principles and standards of research ethics and evaluate research. This research is a joint study of Kaunas (Lithuania) and Turku (Finland) researchers. 

You do not have to participate in the survey. If you agree to participate, you can withdraw from the survey at any time. If you find some questions sensitive because of your personal experience in conducting research or for any other reasons, you may choose to discontinue filling in the survey. Your answers are collected using a survey tool LimeSurvey. You may get acquainted with privacy policy of LimeSurvey here: If you choose to discontinue filling the answers and the survey is not complete, the data will be stored for two weeks after the end of the survey in order to assess the effectiveness of the survey, but will not be used in the data analysis.

The research data collected in this survey will be stored until 30 April 2028 in a password-protected KTU Sharepoint repository, and will be then destroyed by deletion. The results of the research may be published in research journals and conferences and disseminated via media, such as a website.
