Research Ethics is aimed at all readers and authors interested in ethical issues in the conduct of research, the regulation of research, the procedures and process of ethical review as well as broader ethical issues related to research such as scientific integrity and the end uses of research. The journal aims to promote, provoke, host and engage in open and public debate about research ethics on an international scale but also to contribute to the education of researchers and reviewers of research.
Research Ethics publishes original papers and review articles as well as informative case studies, and offers a home for submissions from authors from around the world. The quality of submitted articles is evaluated independently by double-blind peer review.
This journal is a member of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE).
