Detailed Case Study

This is the beginning of the Detailed Case Study. We also recommend the Short Case Study for a quick overview of the seven parts of the case study and one question about each part.

Viewing the case and answering the questions in this section will not only help you to learn how the image guidelines intersect with best practices in mentoring and authorship, but will also enable you to practice your ethical deliberation skills in a safe environment.

Section I: Pre-Question

Reflect on your own experience: do you have any concerns about how policies on authorship, equipment use, and mentoring are explained to new students when they first begin working in your lab? Click “yes” or “no” and then briefly explain why or why not in the text box provided.
