AGUILAR HERNANDEZ, Idalberto; DARROMAN MONTESINOS, Irina; PERERA MILIAN, Leidis Sandra  e  BENITEZ MAQUEIRA, Bárbara. Knowledge of the scientific research ethics. Rev Cubana Med Gen Integr [online]. 2008, vol.24, n.3. ISSN 0864-2125.

The appearance of the Research Ethics Committees is closely linked to the events connected with abuse of power that took place in the researches with human beings carried out in the XX century. A descriptive study was conducted aimed at exploring the knowledge of professionals on research ethics. A sample consisting of 50 of them with different years of working experience was selected. Analysis and synthesis were used as theoretical methods, and survey was used as an empirical method, where the questionnaire technique was applied. The questionnaire was based on the variables to be studied. The medical specialists with a professional experience between 5 and 10 years prevailed. A low index of researches and of scientific production was observed among the professionals that were surveyed. It was found a wide lack of knowledge of the ethics of research with human beings that was evidenced in the demand of theoretical knowledge about the ethical principles and limits ruling every research where the human beings take part, the moral and legal responsability of the professional in these researches, as well as the ethical requirements of evaluation of the research designs.
