Balancing Scientific Autonomy and Government Control
This chapter summarizes the major themes in the book and offers some policy recommendations for government science advice, government funding decisions, science with national security implications, research with human subjects, and science education. It also argues that the U.S. government should form a new agency to provide much‐needed independent scientific advice, that appointments to leadership positions at science agencies should be depoliticized, that scientific institutions and organizations should develop policies and codes of conduct to provide scientists with guidance concerning research with national security implications, that universities should teach students and trainees about the political aspects of science, and that career scientists should become knowledgeable about the politics of science and more involved in political issues relating to science.
