PINTO, Cesar Augusto Sadalla; MENDONCA, Luciana de Oliveira Souza; MONTE, Thaidys da Conceicao Lima do  and  NUNES, João Batista Carvalho. Ethics in research: analysis of the dissertations of a masters in Education in Ceará. Educação. Porto Alegre [online]. 2021, vol.44, n.2, e34020.  Epub Apr 25, 2022. ISSN 1981-2582.

The objective was to analyze how the dissertations of a teaching institution in Ceará address the ethical questions in the research. A quantitative study was carried out with 104 dissertations, considering the presence of ethical care in the abstract; the presence of a section on the ethical aspects of research; the presence of an Informed Consent Form; and approval by a Research Ethics Committee. The non-parametric statistical analysis was performed using the Kruskal-Wallis test, with significance level of 0.05, using SigmaStat 3.5 software. The data revealed that most of the dissertations do not fully comply with CNS Resolution 466/2012, despite that they make ethical references throughout the work. There were no statistically significant differences (p> 0.05) in relation to the categories of analysis, as a function of the year of defense.

Keywords : ethics in research; educational research; postgraduate studies.
