Responsibilities of Scientists

Science is an effective method for finding the truth when scientists act responsibly. Some cardinal rules:

  • Measure and describe as accurately as possible
  • Check experimental results
  • Describe methods as fully and objectively as possible so others can replicate experiments
  • Do not fabricate or falsify evidence
  • Distinguish hypotheses that are speculation from those that are supported by evidence
  • Acknowledge the work of others, especially when using their methods or results
  • Make new findings public in timely fashion
