Human Research Ethics for the Social Sciences and Humanities

Welcome to Macquarie University's Online Ethics Training Module!

This free educational resource examines the particular ethical issues raised by social science and humanities research. The training module is divided into 6 basic parts. You can start and stop reading at any point in the module, and you can close it and return to it later. After you have reviewed the entire module, there is a quiz that tests your comprehension of the material.
