Scientists build on the published work of other researchers and can proceed with confidence only if they can assume that the previously reported facts on which their work is based have been reported accurately. All scientists have a professional responsibility to be honest in their publications. They must describe methods accurately and in sufficient detail, report only observations that were actually made, make clear in the manuscript which information derives from the author’s work and which comes from others (and where it was published), assure readers that research has been carried out in accordance with ethical principles, and assign authorship only to persons who merit and accept authorship.
