CHI Subcontract: Conscience Works

Consumer Health Initiative Subcontract: ?Conscience Works: A Collection of Electronically Published Works on Moral Developmental Psychology and Its Applications.? The intent of Conscience Works is to bring together existing digitized and previously un-digitized consumer-oriented and scholarly research materials on moral developmental psychology and bioethics, including the development of the conscience in children affected by abuse, neglect, trauma, emotional or mental disorders, as well as in children with relative advantages. These collected works, of interest to children, parents, educators and healthcare professionals, will be freely available to all from a single website and permanently archived in the institutional depository of Indiana University ? Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI). This depository is based upon the MIT DSpace model. Items placed in the depository will first be catalogued using terminology from the Unified Medical Language System (UMLS) and other vocabularies. Bibliographies will be linked back to PubMed records for access to abstracts and, if available, full text. The depository will be accessible worldwide, including via links from finding tools such as the National Library of Medicine?s MedlinePlus sections on Child Mental Health and Teen Mental Health, and will include translations of some of the scholarly tools and other publications into additional languages.
