Internet Research Ethics Digital Library, Resource Center, and Commons

IRE Commons

The Internet Research Ethics Digital Library, Resource Center, and Commons was a National Science Foundation-supported project led by former CIPR director Dr. Elizabeth Buchanan.┬áThe project’s mission is to have influence on researchers from all disciplines and on the foundations of their research ethics systems and information ethics in general, and on the nature of research itself in an ever-connected, online environment. Specifically, the project:

  • maintained a disciplinarily disparate collection of literature on Internet Research Ethics in one searchable and annotated digital library
  • highlighted various resources to help faculty and students across a range of disciplines conduct ethical research in online environments
  • housed a social commons where researchers, teachers, and students can come together to discuss the myriad and evolving challenges presented by Internet research
