 Midwest Book Review 

20 October 2014

 Scientific Integrity: Text and Cases in Responsible Conduct of Research provides the essential content and skill-building tools for teaching the responsible conduct of scientific research. Scientific Integrity covers the breadth of concerns faced by scientists: protection of animal and human experimental subjects, scientific publication, intellectual property, conflict of interest, collaboration, record keeping, mentoring, and the social and ethical responsibilities of scientists. Learning activities and resources designed to elucidate the principles of scientific integrity include: Dozens of highly relevant, interactive case studies for discussion in class or online; Numerous print and online resources covering the newest research guidelines, regulations, mandates and policies; Discussion questions, role-playing exercises, and survey tools to promote critical thought; Documents including published rules of conduct, sample experimentation protocols, and patent applications. The newly updated fourth edition of Scientific Integrity: Text and Cases in Responsible Conduct of Research responds to significant new mandates, policies, laws, and other developments in the field of responsible conduct of scientific research.

Informed, informative, thoughtful, thought-provoking, articulate, enhanced with the inclusion of seven appendices, and a comprehensive index, Scientific Integrity: Text and Cases in Responsible Conduct of Research should be considered a critically important, even mandatory addition to professional and academic library Science & Ethics reference collections.
