Research Ethics, Collaboration, & Skills

Responsible Conduct of Research

"In general terms, responsible conduct in research is simply good citizenship applied to professional life. Researchers who report their work honestly, accurately, efficiently, and objectively are on the right road when it comes to responsible conduct. Anyone who is dishonest, knowingly reports inaccurate results, wastes funds, or allows personal bias to influence scientific findings is not."

(Introduction to the Responsible Conduct of Research, Nicholas Steneck)
