عنوان مقاله [English]
In all fields, moral principles rest upon theoretical principles, where these rest in turn upon meta-theoretical foundations. For this reason, the agent is committed to a moral principle when it arises from his or her theoretical and paradigmatic insights. Theoretical principles of morality at the stage of conclusion are different from those at the stage of research, and as a consequence, moral principles of research at this stage are different from those at other stages. These theoretical principles require the inquirer to prefer people’s interests and publish or conceal the conclusions of their research in accordance with people’s interests, and act in a way that the society gets maximal interests and suffer from minimal harms as a result of the research. On this account, when the researcher arrives at the results, he or she is morally obliged to make them unavailable if he takes them to harm the society, and to publish them courageously, in familiar words, and with faithfulness if they do not, and then wait for feedback from other scholars. This research seeks to extract the theoretical principles at this stage and propose its moral principles.
