Ethical Behaviours Versus Behaviours That Contravene Deontological Research Principles in the Publishing Process

Journal Article
This article answers a number of questions that researchers, especially young ones, may ask as they face ethical norms about scientific research that can have serious professional consequences if violated. More generally, scientific integrity issues may include, beyond deontological rules, ethical behaviors that are less codified but for which, nevertheless, the scientific community agrees on certain principles. In this article, the author reminds the reader of the principles and rules that have been typically adopted by scientific journals, even if differences are observed from one journal to another. The author also suggests a set of practices intended to prevent behaviors that would infringe on scientific integrity.
