Greetings again. I hope September has started well for you. Our school year has begun, the AuthorAID site continues to be refined, and I look forward to writing to you more often.
This week I received e-mail from a US scientist who will soon teach writing overseas. Earlier, I had shared with him resources posted on the AuthorAID site. Now he was seeking more material about publication ethics.
As I replied to this scientist, I thought some of you might be interested in the resources I mentioned. So, here they are:
A favorite resource is On Being a Scientist, published by the US National Academies. This publication discusses scientific ethics in general. But because much of scientific ethics is publication ethics, it contains much about the latter. On Being a Scientist includes cases to discuss.
All the content of On Being a Scientist can be accessed for free, by clicking on the section titles. Also, PDF copies can be purchased.
A new edition of On Being a Scientist is being prepared. When it is available, I hope to tell you. Meanwhile, rather than wait, I am mentioning the current version.
Wishing everyone a good week—
