Abstract

As scientists, we pay homage to the truth. Unfortunately, this search for the truth can be tainted by some unethical individuals who steal research and text from others, publish nearly identical papers in multiple journals, fabricate data, or manipulate images. Some are caught—many others are probably not. This chapter discusses ethical issues for researchers.
