This chapter considers the various ways that money can interfere with scientific norms. Problems can occur when financial interests intrude into experimental design, data analysis and interpretation, publication, peer review, and other aspects of science that should be protected from financial, political, or other biases. When this happens, financial interests affect the process of scientific research, and they can undermine objectivity, openness, honesty, and other research norms. Although it is impossible to prevent money from having any impact on research, society should take some steps to prevent financial interests from undermining scientific norms, such as developing policies for journals, granting agencies, and research institutions; educating students and scientists about potential problems and issues; and monitoring of research.
