Free and open to the public

After I describe the major ethical issues in the responsible conduct of research, I will present two short videos that raise ethical questions about authorship, plagiarism, and mentoring. We will identify the standards for authorship of scientific articles, the professional obligations of authors and research mentors, and the reasons why authors should avoid plagiarism. I will present a new developmental model of research mentoring. The model is based on a qualitative, grounded theory study of graduate student mentors of undergraduates in a summer research program.
