Title: Ethical Conduct for Research: A Code of Scientific Ethics

Author: Patton-Mallory, Marcia; Franzreb, Kathleen; Carll, Charles; Cline, Richard;

Date: 2000

Source: Journal of Forestry, Volume 98, Number 7, July 2000

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: Within the Forest Service, as in many other research organizations, there has been a general awareness of scientific ethics but no formal policy or guidelines that encouraged ethical practices. There were no formal guidelines to help identify unethical practices that threatened fairness, accuracy, and integrity in the conduct of science, nor was there any special process for handling allegations of research misconduct within the organization. To fill this void, the Forest Service completed the development of a code of ethical conduct for scientific research and development. The code was adopted by the Forest Service research organization at the end of 1999. The agency is expected to issue a formal policy regarding its use later in 2000.

Keywords: ethics, ethical conduct code
