When conducting work in an organisation you should ensure that a person of responsi¬bility is identified as having given permission for the research to go ahead. In some organisations there may be a formal proce¬dure that you need to follow. For example, some Health Authorities require all research proposals - including Masters dissertations - to be approved by an Ethical Committee before proceeding.

The onus must rest on the student to ensure that a proper reply can be given to the question “Who gave you permis¬sion to do this?”
