About this book

Recent scandals and controversies such as the fabrication of data in federally funded science, the manipulation and distortion of research sponsored by private companies, human embryonic stem cell research, cloning, and the patenting of DNA and cell lines, illustrate the importance of ethics in scientific research.

The authors are qualified and dexterous on the subject of accountability in research. Their book covers impressive ground with thoughtful attention to practicality and readability. I would recommend this to anyone involved in scientific research. Doody's Notes
