On Being a Scientist: Responsible Conduct in Research "Research endeavors are becoming larger, more
complex, and more expensive, creating new kinds of situations
and relationships among researchers." Tackle the questions of how anomalous data should be treated;
how values influence

in science; and more through case studies.
