PALMA-MORGADO, Daniel et al. The axiological assessment of projects into research ethics committees. Ars Pharm [online]. 2015, vol.56, n.2, pp.121-126. ISSN 2340-9894.

The aim of this paper is to show that the existence of Ethics Research Committees is consistent with the historical time in which we reside. The idea of a neutral science dates back to the creation of the Royal Society. Putnam and other researchers proposed the term "epistemic values" to the values of science. This axiological transformation has been called in several ways: knowledge mode 2, post-normal science, post-academic science and technoscience. There is no innovation without evaluation, even without multiple previous assessments. The actual existence of the Research Ethics Committees (RECs) is a fact consistent with the historical development of epistemology in the twentieth century. One of the most important functions of RECs, is the axiological evaluation (epistemic values) of research projects.

Keywords : knowledge; ethics research; ethics committees; evaluation studies.
