Why you can't afford to ignore publication ethics
About this video
Becoming an author can bring you recognition, but it comes with a host of responsibilities. Paying attention to publication ethics is crucial to a researcher’s career. Even if you make a mistake unknowingly, it can leave a stain on your reputation. And, once your peers and the public lose faith in your work, it’s an uphill struggle to win it back.
Catriona Fennell is responsible for Elsevier’s publishing integrity and reproducibility programs. In this webinar recording, which is packed with practical examples, she runs through the ethical areas early career researchers should consider when preparing a manuscript. You will learn about author responsibilities, including originality, conflicts of interest and authorship.
You will come away with a clear understanding of an author’s ethical obligations and how failing in those can impact not only you, but the research coming out of your institute, and the wider public’s perception of science and medicine.
