AbstractThis survey, completed in 1990, looked at biomedical students' perceptions about unethical practices in research, and their own experiences with responsible conduct of research education. Of the over 500 students interviewed, around 23% stated that they had had not ethics training, 36% had seen some kind of scientific misconduct, and 18% said they would be willing to fabricate, omit, or manipulate data to publish a paper or wine a grant. The authors conclude that the results of this survey underscores the need to assess the effectiveness of training activities and methods in research ethics education.
