We recommend reading this poster in combination with the full ethical standards document: [LINK omitted for review] ICTD/ICT4D research is multi-disciplinary, multi-stakeholder and based in different cultural contexts, yet in recent years calls have been heard to agree minimum ethical standards across this field. This paper documents the participatory process we co-facilitated in response to these calls on behalf of the community, and presents the resulting document as collectively agreed set of minimum ethical standards, to be reviewed and updated in years to come. We call on journals, conference organizers, reviewers, ethics committees, institutional review boards and funders to uphold these standards and support their implementation.
