The only way is ethics – principles for scientists

Seems about right to me.

The topic of having professional ethics for scientists isn’t new. Here is a list of principles proposed by the then chief scientific adviser in the UK, Professor Sir David King – in 2007:

  • Act with skill and care, keep skills up to date
  • Prevent corrupt practice and declare conflicts of interest
  • Respect and acknowledge the work of other scientists
  • Ensure that research is justified and lawful
  • Minimise impacts on people, animals and the environment
  • Discuss issues science raises for society
  • Do not mislead; present evidence honestly
