Abstract

The original purposes of the American Psychological Association's (APA's) Committee for the Protection of Human Participants in Research (CPHPR), the new purposes of the CPHPR under its new name, the Committee on Standards in Research (CSR), and the scientific and social zeitgeist that has occasioned this change are described. Also several areas of concern about research ethics that are of special interest to the current members of the CSR are identified, and communications between the CSR and APA members on these issues are encouraged.
