The Oxford Textbook of Clinical Research Ethics

JAMA. 2008;300(12):1466-1468. doi:10.1001/jama.300.12.1466-b

In their introduction, the editors of these 73 chapters state their primary ambition to create a text that can be used to train researchers in developed as well as developing nations—a text that allows the foremost experts in clinical research ethics to reflect critically on what has been a scandal-driven and hence somewhat haphazard development of standards. This distinguishes The Oxford Textbook of Clinical Research Ethics from an elegantly written single-author essay such as the well-received The Ethics of Biomedical Research: An International Perspective by Baruch Brody (Oxford University Press, 1998).1
