Research Ethics Digest like you’ve never seen it before

For the first time since the publication’s inception in 2008, we’ve given our Research Ethics Digest a major overhaul. Out: aughts-era graphics and user interface. In: a sleek, modern, mobile-friendly design that will provide our membership with a much better experience.

(I’m new to Research Ethics Digest. What is it?)

Upon opening Research Ethics Digest, you’ll find a more satisfying, modern publication that’s easy and enjoyable to browse. Many articles are embedded in the publication itself, eliminating the need to leave the Digest to access them, and articles are presented in a way that makes them easy to read. Mobile friendliness means you can browse on your phone or tablet without making any sacrifices to usability.

Research Ethics Digest is one of PRIM&R members’ favorite benefits, and for good reason: it brings readers timely and thorough aggregation of research ethics scholarship, engaging self-study quizzes with the opportunity for CE credits, featured columns exploring many dimensions of ethical research, and discussion guides for provoking compelling conversation in your office.

None of these things have gone away in the redesign; we’ve just made them all more accessible, more modern, and more pleasant to use.

New to Research Ethics Digest?

Research Ethics Digest is a bimonthly publication containing recent articles from academic research ethics literature. Articles represent a broad range of interest areas within research ethics, including both human and animal research topics. Articles are curated by PRIM&R staff and grouped into themed sections for easy browsing. In some cases, we present just the abstract; in others, access to the full article is available.

Once you’ve browsed the articles of interest to you, you can explore the discussion guides we provide for two articles in each issue. In these guides, we provide further background, questions, and ideas to consider as you think about the article. These one-page PDFs make excellent resources to facilitate discussion with your colleagues.

Research Ethics Digest also includes two columns shared with us by leading publications in the field. Each column presents an intriguing and relevant case study related to animal care and use or human research protections, followed by expert commentary.

Finally, we offer the Research Ethics Digest Self-Study Program, where you can earn continuing education credits by reading the preselected articles and successfully completing an online quiz about those articles.

Credits earned through the Self-Study Program can be applied toward your Certified Professional in IACUC Administration (CPIA®) or Certified IRB Professional (CIP®) credential, or other professional credentials that you might hold. To learn more and find out how you can participate, please visit the Self-Study Program section of this issue of Research Ethics Digest.
