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 topics.

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. and abstracted in MEDLINE
