Defining Scientific Misconduct: The Relevance of Mental State
JAMA. 1993 Feb 17; 269(7): 895-897.
Devising and implementing a fair and effective system for policing scientific misconduct will not be easy. Finding the appropriate definition of misconduct is just one component of a complex and delicate task. Many other fundamental questions remain unsettled, including the required degree of due process protection for the accused, the acceptable procedures for institutional and agency adjudications, and the range of permissible sanctions that may be imposed on offenders. Yet progress in resolving any of these questions is unlikely without a more precise and morally defensible understanding of the forbidden conduct. Clarifying the role of culpability is a crucial first step in constructing an adequate response to the problem of scientific misconduct.
