MISST is an acronym the Connected and Open Research Ethics (CORE) initiative research team uses to describe research that involves the use of mobile, imaging, pervasive-sensing, social media, and location-tracking strategies that can passively observe human behavior. The CORE is a growing community where conversations about research ethics and technology are beginning. We seek to increase awareness of this resource and we invite IRBs and research stakeholders to get involved—specifically, we want to hear from the PRIM&R community! We invite you to join the conversation by signing up for the CORE Network and sharing your questions about how to do this research and/or your expertise and lessons learned. You can also follow CORE on Twitter and LinkedIn. Together we can learn from one another and begin to have an informed discussion developing an ethical framework for MISST. Read more

These efforts aim to enhance the RCR knowledge base and strengthen our ability to communicate the positive results of a culture of research integrity. Read more
