THIS IS BAD THIS IS GOOD Research Ethics
THERE IS NO RIGHT WAY TO DO A WRONG THING.
Research Ethics . Researcher must ensure that data is accurate . Researcher must not try to intentionally prove a point Researcher must ensure that data is sufficiently investigated and findings are totally accurate Researcher must not misrepresent the statistical accuracy of data nor must they over-represent the results by altering the findings Researcher must ensure privacy, anonymity and set out a code of ethics .
Research Ethics Three sets of obligations of researchers to adhere to professional standards. 1. An obligation to honor the trust that their colleagues place in them. 2. An obligation to themselves. Irresponsible conduct in research can make it impossible to achieve a goal. 3. An obligation to act in ways that serve the public.
Research Ethics Sharing Scientific Knowledge .Research publication Authorship and collaborative Research .Scientific Misconduct -FFP & QRP
Scientific Knowledge The object of research is to extend human knowledge beyond what is already known. But an individual's knowledge enters the domain of science only after it is presented to others in such a fashion that they can independently judge its validity (NAP, "On Being a Scientist" 1995)
Sharing Scientific Knowledge "Science is a shared knowledge based on a common understanding of some aspect of the physical or social world" (NAP, "On Being a Scientist" 1995) Presentations - Social conventions play an important role in establishing the reliability of scientific knowledge Publications in peer reviewed journals Research results are privileged until they are published Thesis 23

Authorship The list of authors establishes accountability as well as credit. Policies at most scientific journals state that a person should be listed as the author of a paper only if that person made a direct and substantial intellectual contribution to the design of the research, the interpretation of the data, or the drafting of the paper. . The acknowledgments section can be used to thank those who indirectly contributed to the work.
What is publishable... Journals like to publish papers that are going to be widely read and useful to the readers Papers that report "original and significant" findings that are likely to be of interest to a broad spectrum of its readers Papers that are well organized and well written, with clear statements regarding how the findings relate to and advance the understanding/development of the subject Papers that are concise and yet complete in their presentation of the findings
