Abstract

Science is a powerful force for change in modern society. As the professionals at its helm, scientists have a unique responsibility to shepherd that change with thoughtful advocacy of their research and careful ethical scrutiny of their own behavior. In this paper, the author reviews some of the impediments that keeps scientists from taking ethical responsibility for their own work and the work in their institutions and fields of study.
