When ethics is not involved in research and publication, it becomes a compromise. This is not healthy in academics. Ethics is a moral philosophy that deals with the concepts of right and wrong behavior. Research ethics is a growing field of study that maintains standard in conducting research. It provides guidelines for the responsible conduct of research, educates and monitors scientists conducting research to ensure a high ethical standard [1].
