Abstract
The essay explores the concept of responsible research and its principles vis-à-vis standards of high-quality research. Responsible research fulfills standards of high-quality academic research and, at the same time, contributes positively to society. Standards of high-quality research include the definition of a relevant research problem, scientific due diligence, rigor, coherence, validity and soundness, contribution, and readability and style. As for positive contributions to society, I argue that any positive impact, or service, to society can have, in substance, the meaning of contributing to one or more aspects of peace. The expanded concept of peace outlined in the essay offers a transrational consolidation of epistemic and social values. It is, therefore, at the heart of responsible research.
