National Research Council. (2009). A Survey of Attitudes and Actions on Dual Use Research in the Life Sciences: A Collaborative Effort of the National Research Council and the American Association for the Advancement of Science. The National Academies Press.
This report highlights results of a survey of AAAS life sciences members on their knowledge of and attitudes about dual use research. Among the findings, survey results indicated that many respondents had already taken precautionary measures in the absence of guidelines or restrictions on dual use research, were open to scientific community-driven mechanisms to reduce risk, supported training and education on dual use concerns, and agreed that the need exists to better define the scope of research of concern.
