Rating
Allegations of fraud, conflict of interest, and other ethical dilemmas have troubled the scientific community. With increasing frequency, graduate programs in the biomedical sciences are offering formalized training in the principles of responsible scientific conduct. Scientific Integrity, Fourth Edition covers essential topics related to the conduct of scientific investigation, such as guidelines, policies, standards, and codes and contains highly relevant interactive case studies. This textbook covers broad areas of scientific integrity and meets the needs of students and scientists working in the biomedical sciences. Newly updated case studies that parallel the material presented in the chapters are included to illustrate the diversity of issues that have been identified under the umbrella of scientific integrity. All chapters have been thoroughly updated, especially with regard to the new technologies in data discovery and sharing, and the latest NIH and international best practices guidelines. This title is published by the American Society of Microbiology Press and distributed by Taylor and Francis in rest of world territories.

Reviews

"Scientific Integrity should be on the bookshelf of the entire research community. With the ever-growing ability of science to positively impact society, education in the responsible conduct of research is increasingly important for all members of the community, from students through faculty, staff, and administrators." Timothy Donohue, Professor of Bacteriology, University of Wisconsin-Madison, and Director, Great Lakes Bioenergy Research Center
