Format: Paperback
I find this book useful in my research lab; I have used various chapters as assigned readings for our weekly discussion groups, especially when I have a new crop of undergraduate students joining my lab. The book raises good issues, gets my students thinking about their involvement in the research process, and what it means to invest themselves to the point of having ownership in a project as opposed to being a technician. The issues of data ownership and record keeping are also good. Sure, I could just raise these issues myself, but our discussions are better after the students have read the assigned chapter and had a chance to think about the issues. I've ordered my own copy so I don't have to keep checking out the copy from the library.

I was required to buy this book for an ethics course. While the chapters themselves were straightforward, the discussion case studies at the ends of the chapters showed themselves to be outdated. Several of the problems the author posed have been addressed in the years since its 2005 publication. However, it is a very good scientific ethics book, and if there is a new edition I would highly reccomend the text to anyone in need of scientific ethics education.

Format: Paperback
Macrina's SCIENTIFIC INTEGRITY is a short book designed for courses centered around ethics in science. The text is divided into different chapters, each (generally) written by another professor. While the book is mostly concerned with the crossroads of science and ethics, most of the context comes from the biomedical fields. The examples and case studies that each chapter brings focuses on this biomedical approach, and while it doesn't necessarily take away from the overall message, it doesn't always generalize to all sciences. I used this in an advanced level psychology course, and it generalized pretty well.

Chapters include:
Scientific Integrity
Mentoring
Authorship and Peer Review
Human Subject Use
Animal Subject Use
Managing Conflicts of Interest
Collaboration
Intellectual Property
Genetic Technology
Scientific Records Keeping

All chapters end with case studies (hypothetical situations that help promote class discussion), suggested readings (texts that deal with the current chapter's lessons), and references (to collect all of the cited works in the chapter). It's a solid book, recommended for courses centered around ethics. If you're looking for material to read for enjoyment, SCIENTIFIC INTEGRITY often proves to be pretty dry.

Additional release information: There is an older version of this text: Scientific Integrity: An Introductory Text With Cases. This version, while 10 years older, roughly contains the same information. With the newest version (this one listed), chapters have been rearranged, a chapter on Collaboration has been added, and the core readings have been formatted to make perusing chapters easier. If you are buying this book for a class, you could get away with this older version.
