Contemporary Science, Values and Animal Subjects in Research

A pretty good overview of the issue.

Science, Values and Animal Subjects in Research

This site, developed at North Carolina State University, is an Office of Research Integrity (ORI) sponsored project. It is intended to be both a learning tutorial and a clearing house. Ethics and the use of animals in research is an enormous topic: this site is an introduction both to the central issues and the information resources available. The format is the same throughout each Tutorial; an essay with numerous links to further websites. Think of the essay as an extended annotated bibliography, with the written text suggesting connections between the online materials. Study Questions found at the end of each Tutorial or section of a Tutorial in Part I: Ethics and Part III: Mini-Lessons are intended either for self study or for group or class/lab use at your institution.
