Other Ethics




There are some sites that do a good job of identifying the vast array of internet resources for ethics education.  Rather than duplicating their efforts by developing my own list of links, I will direct you to a handful of sites where this is already being done.


Ethics Education Library

This is a general site devoted to providing access to a wide range of material on ethics educations, ranging from case studies to journal articles on assessment of ethics education.


Online Ethics Center

This is a well-established site, recently revamped.  While its focus is on engineering, you may find the resources tab particularly useful since it provides access to numerous professional codes in math, science, and engineering.


Eastern Michigan University Responsible Conduct of Research Modules

These online modules address the key areas of Responsible Conduct of Research identified by the Office of Research Integrity. EMU is no longer maintaining its RCR site, but I have been given permission to post pdfs of the modules.  While some of the material in the modules may be a bit out of date, due to changing regulations, they still have valuable information.

EMU RCR Modules


Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative

Many universities are using the RCR modules on this site as the core of their RCR education to satisfy the NSF requirements.  However, you should be aware that the modules were developed originally for the biomedical sciences, and that bias comes through pretty clearly even when you access the physical sciences modules.  Note that some material is accessible by institutional membership only, but the RCR modules are freely available at the RCR course tab.




This site is hosted on an Eastern Michigan University server, but is not an official EMU web site. The material on this site is not officially approved, licensed, sponsored or endorsed by Eastern Michigan University. The University assumes no express or implied responsibility for any component of this site, including content, presentation, usability, accessibility, accuracy or timeliness, nor of any links directed from this site.
