As with much other scholarship in the sciences, the best source of current information on chemical ethics is in journals. Two journals in particular are devoted to ethics and ethics instruction; others are useful for syllabi, reviews, and case material.
- Science and Engineering Ethics. Edited by Stephanie J. Bird and Raymond Spier. Opragen Publications. Index and abstracts on line at <http://www.opragen.co.uk/>.
- "A multi-disciplinary quarterly journal, launched in 1995, exploring ethical issues confronting scientists and engineers through: Refereed papers and reviews, editorials, comments, letters, educational resources, book and conference reports, and special topic issues."
- TREnds: Teaching Research Ethics. Edited by Kenneth D. Pimple. The Poynter Center for the Study of Ethics and American Institutions, Indiana University. Selected full-text articles and editorials are free at <http://www.indiana.edu/~poynter/trends.html>.
- "A newsletter on issues in teaching research ethics...We also often publish articles and opinions reprinted by permission from The Scientist."
Several chemical and engineering journals publish articles dealing with issues in research ethics education. The most significant of these is the Journal of Chemical Education. Papers in this journal are often by chemistry faculty and are often class syllabi and outlines. Of note are: Beck and Kauffman, 71(11): 922-924, 1994; Coppola and Smith, 73(1): 33-34, 1996; Kovac, 73(10): 926-928, 1996; Rytting and Schowen, 75(10): 1317-1320, 1998; Sweeting, 76(3): 369-372, 1999; and Moody and Freeman, 76(9): 1224-1225, 1999.
