Research Ethics in Epidemics and Pandemics: A Casebook

Epidemic Ethics is pleased to announce the publication of an Open Access Casebook that provides a unique insight into practical ethical challenges associated with pandemic health research. It brings together expert commentaries and 44 complex real-world cases from around the globe. We are happy to have been a part of this project and invite you to learn more.

The Casebook aims to be of value to a range of academic and professional audiences with an interest in research ethics, epidemics and pandemics, and global health. Topics addressed include issues arising when prioritising and de-prioritising research; adapting research and research procedures; accelerating ethical and regulatory review processes; reporting research findings and sharing data; and recognising and respecting the rights and interests of research participants, communities and publics in rapidly evolving pandemic contexts.

The Casebook is free to download from
