Ethics Course

This is a course describing the ethical issues research scientists need to consider when performing their research. First, you will be given the federal definition of scientific misconduct and then you will be taken through images demonstrating different types of data manipulation. Following these sections, you will be introduced to the other ethical issues that need to be considered when conducting scientific research, followed by questions about each issue that you will be required to answer. Upon completion of the course, you will be able to print a certificate demonstrating that you have successfully completed the assignment.
