About this book

Provides a core of topic areas that can be used to educate graduate and postdoctoral trainees and professional researchers on the principles of scientific integrity. There are interactive case studies, nearly 30% of which are new to third edition. The book is written by practicing scientists on the front lines of ethical issues, who cover a variety of topics related to the conduct of scientific investigation, discussing guidelines and policies, standards, and codes. There is a companion web site, maintained by author, which contains a rich collection of internet resources, and there are discussion questions to promote critical thought.

"A clear strength of the book is its use of case studies [...] They underscore the complexity of the subjects and will without question stimulate much discussion in the classroom."
- The Lancet, February 1996
