<< Previous   | Index |   Next >>


In this video, Anne explains that scientists have ethical standards that guide their work, including being truthful and honest in collecting and reporting data, and acknowledging the work of others. She describes how she applies these ethical principles in her own research in geologic mapping, as well the requirements for scientists who study animals and humans—and what happens in the rare breaches of ethical standards (and how to avoid these breaches).
