Ethics CORE for Students

Ethics CORE's mission is to centralize information on research ethics in the sciences so that you can easily find materials that will help you learn and address ethics issues that you encounter. Here are some places where you might want to start exploring Ethics CORE:

Also, if you register as an Ethics CORE user, you will be able to form discussion groups with other students and connect with university faculty and industry researchers in your field. The Ethics CORE community can be a resource for you when you have questions or want to learn more about a particular aspect of someone's work.
