Art Science Research Laboratory is a 501 (c)(3) not-for-profit organization that publishes iMediaEthics, along with several others sites, including art site ToutFait.Com and NASA's Astrobiology Magazine. ASRL is co-founded and directed by Rhonda Roland Shearer, an artist, art historian and adjunct journalism lecturer at the School of Journalism and Mass Communication, University of Iowa, and her late husband, Harvard professor and scientist, Stephen Jay Gould.
Students and young journalists work with professional researchers to foster the media's use of scientific methods and experts before publication. We also publish international media ethics news stories and investigations of factual errors and ethical breaches by media outlets.
