Description

In the world of research, the race to get published first and be recognised often leads to haste, shortcuts, fabrications and other misconduct. Understanding the ethical norms and responsibilities expected from research authors promotes the pursuit of knowledge and truth, making it imperative to filter out any mistakes, half-truths and misrepresentation.

This program helps authors avoid ethical issues in scientific research by highlighting how important it is and presents a detailed description of the main concerns that plague the current system. You will also learn how to avoid these ethical issues through conscientious investigation, cross-referencing and filtering, and ensure that your research does not violate any publishing norms.
