About this book

This book will be about best practices in all the major common areas of research management and practice that are common to scientific researchers, especially those in academia. Aimed toward the younger scientist, it will critically examine the key areas that continue to plague scientists, even relatively mature and honest scientists, who continually deal with those who choose to misbehave or those who unintentionally slip into misbehaviour.
