Research Ethics for Scientists A Companion for Students

by C. Neal, Jr. Stewart

Research Ethics for Scientists A Companion for Students Synopsis

Research Ethics for Scientists is about best practices in all the major areas of research management and practice that are common to scientific researchers, especially those in academia. Aimed towards the younger scientist, the book critically examines the key areas that continue to plague even experienced and well-meaning science professionals. For ease of use, the book is arranged in functional themes and units that every scientist recognizes as crucial for sustained success in science; ideas, people, data, publications and funding. These key themes will help to highlight the elements of successful and ethical research as well as challenging the reader to develop their own ideas of how to conduct themselves within their work. Tackles the ethical issues of being a scientist rather than the ethical questions raised by science itself * Case studies used for a practical approach * Written by an experienced researcher and PhD mentor * Accessible, user-friendly advice * Indispensible companion for students and young scientists
