Purpose of this page:

The purpose of this page is to provide links to some sites of interest from a research ethics perspective. It also provides links to some published articles, and to some on-line notes that I've prepared. Some of the links provided in these latter notes are now out of date, because I'm not continually updating all of the sets of notes that I've prepared in the past.
