AbstractThe article compares selected research ethical codes from medical science and anthropology, and discusses the similarities and differences that exist because of the history of the different professions. After detailing the common elements in the codes, such as informed consent and protecting humans from harm, and the different emphasis that the codes focus on, the article concludes by recommending that research ethical codes be compared between disciplines, and how the professions could benefit from these comparisons.
