A healthy ethics constitutes the essence of a civilized society, in other words the ethics is the foundation on which we build relations both in everyday life and in business. One can say that ethics does not refer to the links that you build with others, because all the people have relations with each other or some over others. It refers to the quality and integrity of these links. Regardless of the type of scientific research, it must not be carried out at random and must be rigorously designed, organised and planned. The purpose of the article is to highlight the close link between ethics and science created in order to improve the quality of scientific research.
