SAGE Publishes Research Ethics

Los Angeles, CA (February 29, 2012) – SAGE now publishes Research Ethics, the quarterly journal of the Association of Research Ethics Committees (AREC), with the first SAGE issue appearing in March 2012. 

Research Ethics publishes original papers and review articles as well as informative case studies. It is aimed at all readers and authors interested in ethical issues in research, the regulation of research and the procedures and process of ethical review.  The journal aims to promote, provoke, host and engage in open and public debate about research ethics but also to contribute to the education of researchers and reviewers of research.

"SAGE is thrilled to be able to publish Research Ethics," said Karen Phillips, Editorial Director, SAGE. "We have a long-standing publishing programme of journals that explore the way research is conducted and to be chosen as partner by such a prestigious Association demonstrates the commitment SAGE has to supporting ethical standards in research. We look forward to working closely with the Association to continue to build and expand the readership of this high quality journal."

"The Association of Research Ethics Committees (AREC) is delighted to be partnering with SAGE to further develop the publication of its quarterly journal Research Ethics" said Jackie Maull, Chief Executive Officer, AREC. "AREC take great pride in the quality of the journal, highly regarded by subscribers and academics alike, and look forward to building a strong and successful publication for the future."

The Roger Rawbone Research Ethics Student Prize

To recognize the contribution to the journal by Roger Rawbone as Founding Editor and his work in growing the Research Ethics community, each year Research Ethics awards the Roger Rawbone Research Ethics Student Prize for the best paper submitted by a student (at any level: undergraduate, graduate or postgraduate).  The prize is publication of the submitted paper in the first issue of the journal in the following year, as the prize winning paper.  If the paper was already accepted and published in the previous year then the author will be invited to publish a reflection on the issue they raised.  The award of the prize will be determined by the editors of Research Ethics with Roger Rawbone.
