Who Wrote This Paper? Basics of Authorship and Ethical Issues
Scientific integrity encompasses a variety of processes related to scientific research and reporting. True scientific integrity requires that the researcher or author be objective, complete, fair, and accurate in reporting results of scientific work. Integrity also requires that appropriate credit be given in authorship to all who participated sufficiently, and that only those who participated sufficiently be recognized. It is only through the avenues of scientific integrity and appropriate application of publication ethics that the accurate reporting of science can be accomplished.
