Braxton, John M.; Bayer, Alan E.
Journal of Higher Education, v65 n3 p351-72 May-Jun 1994
A survey of 334 biochemists identified 5 patterns of attitudes and beliefs about taking action for scientific misconduct: (1) reputational harm, (2) sanction criteria, (3) whistleblower stigmatization, (4) professional etiquette, and (5) ideological desensitization. Influences of intraprofessional status, departmental cohesion, institutional pressure for grants, and professional solidarity on these patterns were also examined. (Author/MSE)
