This section reflects the Online Ethics Center's long commitment to furthering knowledge and discussion of research responsibilities both individual and social. It contains cases, discussions, guidelines, and regulations bearing on (1) the responsible conduct of research (RCR), including both issues of research integrity and issues of the treatment of the research subject; and (2) researchers' social responsibility, including for the implications of their work and for engaging and communicating with the public.
Research conditions described in the cases, scenarios, and dramatic readings range over a variety of disciplines, from engineering and computer science, the physical, life, and social sciences to medicine.
