|Scholarly Misconduct||Ethical Conduct in Scholarly Activity (cont.)||4 of 11|
Respect is key to promoting collaboration and trust. Mutual respect among colleagues is fundamental in activities such as peer review and mentoring. Respect for research subjects, both animal and human, as well as respect for the natural environment, is important to preserve the public’s trust in allowing their continued use in research activities.
Scholars should also respect
the laws, rules, regulations, policies, and ethical principles that govern
certain aspects of research and scholarly activity.
