Honoring God through Scientific Research: Navigating the Ethics of Publishing with Our Students
Kendall, Dana L.; Campanario, Scott C.
International Journal of Christianity & Education, v20 n2 p133-148 Jul 2016
Scientists dedicate their careers to the quest of learning about the world through the collection and reporting of empirical data. Subsequently, practitioners apply this information in a variety of settings to positively impact society at large. However, there is a growing consensus that the current system for publishing and disseminating research findings has a negative impact on the trustworthiness of the extant body of scientific knowledge. Using a theological framework to undergird the discussion, we address current issues of scientific integrity as they pertain to the training of future researchers in the context of the faculty/graduate student mentorship. Moreover, we propose strategies for those who wish to honor God in their scientific professions by reporting their work honestly, and how they may prepare their students for the ethical challenges inherent in the existing publishing system.
