3.4 Social responsibilities of researchers

While researchers from all fields share many common responsibilities and privileges, other duties vary from discipline to discipline. This module directs your attention to ethical issues specific to your area of study. Under Assignments, look for the link to "NCSU research ethics seminars," attend one during the current term and participate actively in discussion. If you cannot find a seminar that suits your needs, you may substitute another seminar. You must ensure that alternative seminars meet class criteria by checking them with the instructor.

If you cannot find a seminar to attend during this term at NC State or another Triangle university or institution, then find the article of most relevance to your work listed as optional assignments and contribute ~500 word discussion of it to the online community of your choice.
