The Ethics CORE Digital Library is funded by The National Science Foundation with a mission to bring together information on best practices in research, ethics instruction and responding to ethical problems that arise in research and professional life.
What is Ethics CORE?
Ethics CORE will develop, gather, preserve and provide comprehensive access to resources related to professional and research ethics for many audiences. It will provide information and expertise for instructors who teach ethics, students with questions about research integrity, researchers and engineers who encounter ethical challenges in practice, administrators in universities and businesses who oversee ethics and compliance policies, scholars who conduct research on professional and research ethics, and others with questions or interests in these areas using a variety of tools including Online Presentations, Courses, Learning Modules, Animations, Teaching Materials, and more. These resources come from contributors in our scientific community, and are used by visitors from all over the world.
Ethics CORE investigators hail from diverse backgrounds, including business, law, civil engineering, education, electrical and computer engineering and library sciences. Other partners bring strengths across the range of disciplines supported by the National Science Foundation and beyond.
