The first edition of this best selling title has been adopted at numerous institutions as a text for teaching responsible research conduct. Significantly revised and refined based on the experience gained from its use in the classroom, Scientific Integrity, 2nd edition once again is the definitive single source for teaching this important topic. All of the original chapters have been revised and updated and two new chapters have been added.

Designed to foster class discussion, case resolution requires students to use critical thinking as they integrate personal and professional ethical standards and apply them to solve the cases. Although the focus is directed at the biomedical and natural sciences, this book serves the needs of all instructors who wish to teach the essential core areas of research conduct in most fields of science. Its comprehensive content, relevant exercises, and useful appendixes make it an ideal text for both novice and experienced instructors.
