Abstract
Research methodologies used to investigate three areas of moral and ethical decision making are reviewed with the intent to highlight those that are potentially of interest to DRDC and the defence research community. A summary of measures used to examine individual moral reasoning includes compendia of the widely used Moral Judgement Interview and Defining Issues Test. Additionally, measures of moral behaviour are discussed with an emphasis on those surrounding issues of helping and social behaviour. Moreover, research methods used to investigate growing fields of interest, such as the influence of intuitions, emotions and proximity on moral judgement and actions, are also presented. Conclusions are drawn and recommendations for future directions of research relevant to DRDC are made.
