We are living in an age when scientific achievements and new technologies rapidly change the way we live. Due to their broad impact on our society, researchers continuously encounter moral and ethical challenges of their work. The ethical concerns are likely to be more complex but crucial in every aspect of research activities and therefore it is important to make an effort to think about the ethical issues. This symposium will focus on the authorship and researcher's responsibility by Professor Jae In Lee (Seoul National University of Education). Professor Ock-Joo Kim (Seoul National University, College of Medicine) will also discuss how we define the ethical boundaries.
