On Being A Scientist: Responsible Conduct In Research

http://www.nap.edu/openbook.php?record_id=4917

A free online book about responsible conduct in research. In the past, young scientists learned the ethics of research largely through informal meansóby working with senior scientists and watching how they dealt with ethical questions. That tradition is still vitally important.
But science has become so complex and so closely intertwined with society's needs that a more formal introduction to research ethics and the responsibilities that these commitments imply is also neededóan introduction that can supplement the informal lessons provided by research supervisors and mentors.
