To address the communication gap between nano-scientists and ethicists, nano-scientists’ ethical information seeking and sharing behavior are examined. Drawing on Ethics Position Theory (EPT) and Planned Risk Information Seeking Model (PRISM), this study seeks to profile ethical practices among nano-scientists and identify predictors for ethical information seeking and sharing
