Description: The continual development of technology opens many new and exciting doors in all walks of life, including science. Undoubtedly, we all have benefited from the ability to rapidly disseminate and acquire scientific information. Published articles can be downloaded from the Internet even prior to their "actual" publication date, requests for pdf reprints of papers can be e-mailed to authors around the globe and sometimes honored within minutes, and webcasts allow for both passive and active participation in conferences and workshops without leaving one's office. But along with the increasing availability of technological tools comes the need for a corresponding understanding of ethical conduct and responsibilities associated with their use. Science is increasingly more accessible than ever before, but has this accessibility garnered new dilemmas?
