P495: Ethical communication: Teaching students how to

Judith Currano (University of Pennsylvania, USA)

While students learn to write scientific papers at an early stage in their careers, they are largely uneducated in other aspects of the scholarly communication cycle until they come into their own as research scientists.  The University of Pennsylvania has combined its required, first-year graduate course in chemical information with a segment of its mandatory research ethics training.  The semester opens with an overview of the chemical literature and its place in the research process, and then attention focuses on the publication cycle, explaining the duties and responsibilities of scientists at each stage of the process, as well as the ethical issues facing all of the key players.  This discussion is supplemented with readings and case studies, and the module culminates with the students completing the CITI ethics modules.
