This article reflects on the relevance and applicability of the Belmont Report nearly four decades after its original publication. In an exploration of criticisms that have been raised in response to the report and of significant changes that have occurred within the context of biomedical research, five primary themes arise. These themes include the increasingly vague boundary between research and practice, unique harms to communities that are not addressed by the principle of respect for… 
Beyond the Belmont Report
TLDR
A more radical departure from traditional critiques of the Belmont Report and its principles is proposed, describing how concepts like tribal sovereignty and solidarity might inform frameworks for the ethical conduct of biomedical research.
The Belmont Report at 40: Reckoning With Time.
TLDR
The Belmont Report lays out a principled analytical framework to "guide the resolution of ethical problems arising from research involving human subjects" and must now reckon with all-important novel issues of the day that could not have been foreseen by its drafters.
What Kind of Research Ethics for the Arab Region
The international guidelines on research ethics rely predominantly on deontological prescriptions that emphasize respect for autonomy, maintaining privacy and confidentiality, and ensuring justice,
Solidarity without Sovereignty: Extending the Belmont Principles Further?
TLDR
It is asked whether it’s appropriate to extend the principles espoused in the Belmont Report, which are individualistic, to tribal communities as a whole, a move which requires broadening Belmont to take into account not only risks and benefits relevant to individual research subjects but risk and benefits that can apply at the level of communities.
IRBs and the Protection-Inclusion Dilemma: Finding a Balance.
Institutional review boards, tasked with facilitating ethical research, are often pulled in competing directions. In what we call the protection-inclusion dilemma, we acknowledge the tensions IRBs
A Belmont Reboot: Building a Normative Foundation for Human Research in the 21st Century
TLDR
This proposal emphasizes a more transparent and inclusive – and thus more “modern” – process that extends beyond the Common Rule to take a more comprehensive and global view of research oversight and governance.
Clinical Ethics in Historical Context, Part II
In the previous chapter, our discussion centered on the Hippocratic principles that undergird modern medical principlism, namely beneficence, non-maleficence, distributive justice, and the more
Ethics in Academic Surgery
TLDR
To preserve research integrity, good research practices must be observed, along with the avoidance of research misconduct including falsification, fabrication, and plagiarism, character needs to serve as a foundation for ethical decision-making.

The Belmont Report

TLDR
This paper clarifies different senses of autonomy that have been confounded and present more intelligible justifications for informed consent and takes issue with several of the now accepted dogmas that govern research ethics.
A Response to Commentators on “The Limitations of ‘Vulnerability’ as a Protection for Human Research Participants”
TLDR
Vulnerability is one of the least examined concepts in research ethics and certain individuals require ongoing protections of the kind already established in law and regulation, but attention must also be focused on characteristics of the research protocol and environment that present ethical challenges.
Rethinking the vulnerability of minority populations in research.
TLDR
It is argued that the best understanding of minorities, vulnerability, and research will begin with a broad understanding of the risk of individual members of minority groups to poor health outcomes, and a typology of vulnerability is offered to help with this task.
The historical foundations of the research-practice distinction in bioethics
TLDR
The National Commission did not conclude that practice needs no oversight comparable to the regulation of research, but its deliberations and conclusions about the boundaries are more complicated, nuanced, and instructive than has generally been appreciated.
Elucidating the Concept of Vulnerability: Layers Not Labels
In this article I examine several criticisms of the concept of vulnerability. Rather than rejecting the concept, however, I argue that a sufficiently rich understanding of vulnerability is essential
A critical appraisal of protections for aboriginal communities in biomedical research.
TLDR
The distinct characteristics of aboriginal communities are identified and their implications for research in these communities are considered and a fourth principle of respect for communities is suggested.
No Longer Patient: Feminist Ethics and Health Care
TLDR
What feminism is, the relationship between ethics as traditionally understood and feminist ethics, and what a feminist ethics of health care might be like are explained, which reflect the task Sherwin takes to be essential to a feminist approach to bioethics.
Vulnerable Populations in Research: The Case of the Seriously Ill
TLDR
It is argued that people with serious illnesses meet this criterion for reasons related to consent, and supports the claim that vulnerability is the rule, rather than the exception, in biomedical research.
Awareness and Knowledge of the U.S. Public Health Service Syphilis Study at Tuskegee: Implications for Biomedical Research
TLDR
In addition to awareness and knowledge of the USPHS Syphilis Study at Tuskegee, published studies suggest that a broad array of structural and sociocultural factors influence minorities' willingness to participate in biomedical studies.
