This is a science category, so sites will have information and/or guidance on conducting science experiments or research. Some sites will address the ethics of research which could have dangerous or unintended consequences for humans or animals. Other sites will address scientific misconduct, especially fraud in the research or review process. Science in Society focuses on the interaction of science and technology with the broader society. Research ethics is related to research being some degree of 'moral' and/or 'humane.' Agreement as to what is humane or moral in most cases is, understandably, more a result of consensus than of unanimity of opinion. Society/Philosophy/Ethics/Applied will have some overlap with this category and is possibly a better place to submit pages which argue or debate the ethics (or lack thereof) of certain scientific efforts. Society/Philosophy/Ethics/Applied/Bioethics is the proper category for sites specifically dealing with the ethics of research on humans or animals.
