The only ethical principle which has made science possible is that the truth shall be told all the time. If we do not penalize false statements made in error, we open up the way, donít you see, for false statements by intention. And of course, a false statement of fact, made deliberately, is the most serious crime a scientist can commit. Ė C.P. Snow
