Annotated Bibliography

This ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHY covers all the deliverable documents for PRO-RES so far. We thought it could be more useful as a resource, if this were provided as part of the PRO-RES Framework. It avoids repeating references within each of the documents and offers users a quick way of searching for potentially relevant sources. A simple search term should help users to find a source. The annotations offer a short guide to the content of a document.
In order to create a more comprehensive bibliographical resource in the field of research ethics and scientific integrity, we have also listed additional materials that we have found useful. We would welcome other suggestions of possible inclusions within this bibliography that you think might be of value to users.
Please use the web form to send us suggestions. These should use the same referencing style (Harvard), together with a DOI, if available, and a line or two explaining why the document is useful. Add your initials to indicate the annotation source.



Useful sites for locating DOi information are:

Rather, it facilitates the links between distributed content hosted at other sites.
Crossref interlinks millions of items from a variety of content types, including journals, books, conference proceedings, working papers, technical reports, and data sets. Linked content includes materials from Scientific, Technical and Medical (STM) and Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH) disciplines. The expense is paid for by Crossref Member publishers.

Citing isn’t something you usually think about, but it’s important nonetheless. Without even realizing it, you do it already in your everyday life in little ways. Have you ever said, “I heard on XYZ News that . . . ,“ or “I read in XYZ that those two celebrities are dating,” or even “Mom said that you can’t do that.” By saying where you got your information, you are casually citing a source.

Google Scholar is a freely accessible web search engine that indexes the full text or metadata of scholarly literature across an array of publishing formats and disciplines.
