About the guidelines

Two of the committees (NENT and NESH) have their own subject-specific guidelines. In addition, there are a number of guidelines for the field of medicine, as well as separate guides for specific research areas. The commission for the investigation of research misconduct has created a guide for the institutions' reporting to the commission. The committees have also drawn up common general research ethics guidelines.

You can find all the guidelines and guides under each subject area from this page

In addition to the main subject specific guidelines, there are guidelines and guides for internet research, research on human remains (NESH) and animal research (NENT). 

There are also several guidelines only in Norwegian, such as for the medical and health research field

The guide concerning research institutions' reports to the National Commission for the Investigation of Research Misconduct can be found here (Norwegian only).
