Graduate Research Ethics: Cases and Commentaries

Author(s): Brian Schrag, editor (Association for Practical and Professional Ethics)


This extensive set of cases was written by graduate and post-doc students who took part in workshops on Graduate Research Ethics Education, held at Indiana University, Bloomington, from 1996 to 2002. Each case is accompanied by expert commentaries

The workshops at IU brought together students in the natural sciences for a study of research ethics and the cases reflect the experiences and problems these students faced. The project was sponsored by the National Science Foundation (NSF Grant No. SBR 9421897) to the Association for Practical and Professional Ethics (APPE); The Office of Research, University Graduate School; and Poynter Center for the Study of Ethics and American Institutions, all at Indiana University.


The cases are organized in volumes by year, and by general subject matter within each year's volume.
