scientific code of practice ....

Yep, I came away from last week and the previous week thinking too that we need more attention, in classrooms and otherwise, to overall standards for scientific practice. See Science and Public Responsibility and The Need for a Scientific Code of Conduct. Learning by assimilating into a research group needs to be supplemented with some broader perspectives, and research groups themselves could use some as well.  Without it, the enterprise of science risks being held accountable for dubious practices of individual researchers/research groups.
