Scientific Integrity, Fourth Edition
This widely adopted textbook 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
- Supported by a companion website that allows ready access to relevant online content
- 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 new edition of Scientific Integrity responds to significant recent changes―new mandates, policies, laws, and other developments―in the field of responsible conduct of research. Dr. Macrina plants the seeds of awareness of existing, changing, and emerging standards in scientific conduct and provides the tools to promote critical thinking in the use of that information.
Scientific Integrity is the original turnkey text to guide the next generations of scientists as well as practicing researchers in the essential skills and approaches for the responsible conduct of science.
“Scientific Integrity should be on the bookshelf of the entire research community. With the ever-growing ability of science to positively impact society, education in the responsible conduct of research is increasingly important for all members of the community, from students through faculty, staff, and administrators.”
―Timothy Donohue, Professor of Bacteriology, University of Wisconsin-Madison, and Director, Great Lakes Bioenergy Research Center
