Welcome to the CODEX website - rules and guidelines for research

This website's aim is to give researchers and other interested parties access to and information on the guidelines, ethics codes and laws that regulate and place ethical demands on the research process. One can search for a specific document or ones originating from a certain author ("Rules and guidelines"). Short introductions to issues in research ethics create a certain coherence and help those looking for a quick overview ("About research ethics"). There are regular news updates from the world of research ethics.

CODEX addresses first and foremost those who are actively involved in research, but also the interested public. Thus, no special previous knowledge is needed to understand the website's contents. We graciously accept corrections and suggestions for additions - and please tell us when finding broken links.
