At Psyda we only serve clients looking for research 'help', 'aid', 'coaching' and 'clarification'. We do not do anything for you that is meant to be done by you e.g. research proposals, dissertation write up, paraphrasing and anything that constitutes unfair means and unethical. We can help you out with our research expertise but we do not do work for you. For detailed information on what is acceptable you should refer to ethics board of your institute.
We follow high standards of work and consultancy but it is your job to comply by the rules that govern this help. Psyda will not be held responsible for any repercussions and unforeseeable circumstances. We expect and deliver:
Honesty in all aspects of research, including in the presentation of research goals, intentions and findings; in reporting on research methods and procedures; in gathering data; in using and acknowledging the work of other researchers; and in conveying valid interpretations and making justifiable claims based on research findings.
Rigour, in line with prevailing disciplinary norms and standards: in performing research and using appropriate methods; in adhering to an agreed protocol where appropriate; in drawing interpretations and conclusions from the research; and in communicating the results.
Transparency and open communication in declaring conflicts of interest; in the reporting of research data collection methods; in the analysis and interpretation of data; in making research findings widely available, which includes sharing negative results as appropriate; and in presenting the work to other researchers and to the general public.
Care and respect for all participants in and subjects of research, including humans, animals, the environment and cultural objects. Those engaged with research must also show care and respect for the stewardship of research and scholarship for future generations.
The primary responsibility for the conduct of ethical research lies with the researcher. It is a fundamental principle that students/clients engaged in research adopt a continuing personal commitment to act ethically, to encourage ethical behaviour in those with whom they collaborate, and to consult where appropriate concerning ethical issues. Researchers must take all reasonable steps to avoid actions with deleterious consequences for participants, themselves, or other researchers.
