Over the past several years, the National Science Foundation's Office of Integrative Research sponsored a project at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst to create an Ethics in Science and Engineering National Clearinghouse (ESENCe). The Clearinghouse "uses state-of-the-art digital tools to preserve and widely disseminate a variety of materials on ethics and the responsible conduct of research in science and engineering disciplines." On the homepage, visitors can check out the scrolling news updates ("Research Ethics News") culled from around hundreds of different sources, or scroll down the homepage to view an interactive clickable map of related news items from around the world. On the left side of the page, visitors will notice the "Paper of the Day" feature and the "At a Glance" area, which includes the top 10 downloaded items and recent additions to the site. The site is a tremendous resource for scientists, philosophers, and students who wish to stay on top of cutting edge work in these subjects.
