Research Ethics Training Curriculum (RETC), Second Edition

2009 — Human research ethics rest on three basic principles: respect, beneficence and justice. These principles are the foundation of all regulations or guidelines governing research ethics and transcend all geographic, cultural, economic, legal and political boundaries.

Although these principles are universal, there are few tools available to help researchers learn about the development and philosophy of ethics or find out how ethical principles can be applied in a practical way. The Research Ethics Training Curriculum fills the gap.
