Internet Research Ethics
                                           The Ethical information



Internet research ethics involves the research ethics of Internet research, with an emphasis on scientific research carried out via the Internet.

Especially well-known to those interested in bioethics are the Belmont Principles[1] They provide a useful conceptual framework for consideration of issues in research ethics relevant to the protection of human subjects involved in biomedical or behavioral research. However, a principle-based approach is only one of a number of conceptual frameworks that are used to examine ethical issues. Others[2] include:

Consequentialism (or Utilitarian ethics)
Deontological ethics
Ethics of care
Virtue ethics
Open source ethics
