2 ABSTRACT This module is an overview of the current discussion about scientific integrity as it relates to working with animal subjects. In the Introduction we summarize some of the current philosophic discussion, presenting all sides of the issue, albeit in summary fashion, with resources for further study. In the Overview Section you will find a description of three different book chapters that have been widely used in classes on research ethics and animals in institutions that use animals in research. We focus on the regulations and guidelines, both at the national and local level and devote the Theme section to the training requirements at NC State. The Case Study talks about research with pigs and how this relates to dealing with issues of human welfare. In the Thinking Outside the Box section we discuss the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) and ask what its involvement with and responsibility to the larger community might be. As usual, we include an annotated bibliography of articles, books and websites. I want to thank Dr. Tom Regan for his assistance in developing portions of this module. All readings mentioned in this module are available as electronic reserves via the NC State Library electronic course reserves system. To access the hyperlink, click on the title of the article or book chapter with the embedded URL indicated by the blue underlined typeface. Many of the books mentioned are also on three-day circulating print reserve. You can access the general library list of readings by going to the NC State Library home page, clicking on course reserves, and then entering GRAD500.
