This Workshop will focus on ethics in scientific research with a special focus on issues related to the dissemination of the fruits of research through publications. It will be in the format of an opening question / case study followed by an open discussion among the participants.
Specific questions to be discussed will include:
(a) What do we, as researchers, owe to the community of fellow-scientists, as well as to the public?
(b) What are the rules regarding the sharing primary data? How about programs used for data analysis and / or simulations?
(c) Who gets included in the list of authors? What about “guest authorship”?
(d) What do we do after a discovery of an error in our own paper? In someone else’s paper?
(e) Who gets the blame for lapses in a paper?
(f) How do we handle cases of scientific misconduct?
