There is a growing recognition among scientists, government officials, research institutions, and the public that ethical conduct is essential to scientific research. Ethical conduct is important for fostering collaboration, cooperation, and trust among scientists; for advancing the goals of research; for fulfilling scientists' social responsibilities; and for avoiding or minimizing damaging scandals resulting from unethical or illegal behavior. This chapter discusses the importance of ethics in research and the nature of scientific professionalism.
