    We are looking at developing specialist e-learning training modules for ethics committee members and researchers seeking review. They will cover topics such as reviewing genomic research and reviewing social science research. Please give us suggestions of specialist topics you would like to see covered.

    (The current e-learning courses available on this site and elsewhere can be accessed using the resources tab above).

    Thank you for creating this web resource. I wanted to share a recent publication that may be of interest to those who teach research ethics and/or the responsible conduct of research. The manuscript describes the methods used to create a research ethics knowledge and analytical skills assessment tool. The paper was recently published in the Journal of Medical Ethics and can be found here:

    The tool referenced in the paper is available upon request.
