The Journal of Empirical Research on Human Research Ethics (JERHRE)
publishes empirical research and reviews of empirical literature on
human research ethics. Empirical knowledge translates ethical principles
into procedures appropriate to specific cultures, contexts, and research
JERHRE is the only journal in the field of human research ethics dedicated
exclusively to empirical research. Its distinguished editorial and advisory
board brings a range of expertise and international perspective to provide
high-quality peer-reviewed original articles.
Institutions and their researchers share concern about the responsible
conduct of research (RCR), but can experience difficulty finding common
ground around the interpretation of ethical principles and regulations.
JERHRE seeks to create collaboration among these stakeholders by stimulating
research and disseminating knowledge to foster the intelligent application
of ethical principles in research contexts worldwide.
The basic aim of JERHRE is to improve ethical problem solving in human
research. Stakeholders in human research grapple with conflict among
various standards. Without evidence-based problem solving, many conflicts
are unsatisfactorily settled by applying one-size-fits-all interpretation
of principles or regulations, or resorting to anecdote as evidence for
one or another interpretation. JERHRE creates collaboration among stakeholders,
stimulates research, and disseminates knowledge to foster intelligent
application of ethical principles in research contexts worldwide.
JERHRE is published by University of California Press. http://www.ucpressjournals.com and abstracted in MEDLINE
