The future scientist is typically an ardent patriot who is eager to bring honor to himself and to his country, captivated by originality, indifferent to material gain and ordinary pleasures, inclined more toward action than words, and an untiring reader. In short, he is capable of all sorts of sacrifice to achieve the noble dream of giving his name to some new star in the firmament of knowledge. - Santiago Ramon y Cajal

Few [people] are willing to brave the disapproval of their fellows, the censure of their colleagues, the wrath of their society. Moral courage is a rarer commodity than bravery in battle or great intelligence. Yet it is the one essential, vital quality for those who seek to change a world which yields most painfully to change. - Robert F. Kennedy

This chapter addresses responsibility, guidelines, and protections for reporting violations of responsible conduct of research. Upon your completion of this chapter, we hope that you will understand the responsibility of researchers to both self-regulate and to report ethical violations as well as the procedures and protections for whistle blowing. We also want you to reflect on and commit to the values, scientific integrity, and ethical behaviors required for the responsible conduct of research.
