A questionnaire consisting of four parts was used as data collection tool in the research. The first part of the data collection tool contains a demographic information form. The Organizational Trust Scale developed by Omarov (2009) and adapted to Turkish by Terekli (2010) is in the second part of the questionnaire. The third part of the questionnaire contains the Ethical Leadership Scale developed by De Hoogh and Den Hartog (2008) and adapted to Turkish by Alkan (2015). In the fourth part of the questionnaire, Organizational Dedication Scale developed by Rich, Lepine and Crawford (2010) and adapted to Turkish by Kurtpınar (2011) is included.
