Ethical Issues of Working Scientists 

by Sandra C. Greer

Seminar: Scientists encounter ethical issues while doing science, while working among other scientists, and while working within society. Today we will think about how to approach ethical issues in general. Then we will look at the ethical issues in doing science and in dealing with other scientists. Scientists make daily decisions in their work about how to pose questions, how to analyze data, how to report results. Scientists work daily with other scientists as collaborators and coauthors, as supervisors and supervisees, as mentors and mentees, as referees and reviewers, as role models and advisors. All these activities have ethical components.

Workshop: The workshop will be devoted to analyses of case studies of ethical
quandaries that arise in doing science and in dealing with other scientists. Dr. Greer will propose case studies for discussion, but she will welcome (prefer!) that School of Mines staff members also bring to the workshop their own experiences for discussion. The discussions will be held in small groups, with reporting back to the whole group.

Seminar: March 20th from 10:00-11:00 am in CTLM 102

Workshop: March 20th from 12:30-2:30 pm, location TBD
