Openness and Accountability
This chapter examines some of the ethical problems that can arise when the pursuit of profit and prestige affect scientific publication, including bias, duplicate publication, salami science, problems with access to data and materials, and undeserved authorship. To address these concerns, scientific journals, research institutions, professional associations, and funding agencies should develop policies and guidelines for scientific publication. Granting agencies should continue their support for research, education, and policy development pertaining to ethics and integrity in scientific publication. Universities, colleges, and government and private laboratories should sponsor educational and training programs that address the ethics of scientific publication.
