The last few years have also seen interest in teaching chemical ethics rise. The federal government now requires many graduate students receiving NIH and NSF grant monies to pass a seminar or other course on research ethics. Many institutions now offer ethics instruction either as part of introductory classes or as a course unto itself. If students do not learn ethics in school, and if they are not taught to apply ethics to their coursework as well as their research, how can we expect them to be ethical researchers once they are on their own? The problem, of course, is that many of the professors and other instructors expected to teach these issues have never had formal education in the field themselves. There are many resources available for teaching ethics; this guide is designed to help the beginning lecturer or student identify starting points in the field.
