Publication Ethics Statement

Machi & McEvoy (2016) believe ethical researchers should:

  1. not take data out of context to defend a preferred outcome;
  2. do their own research;
  3. present facts to argue a case and not use fallacious arguments;
  4. present all sides of a research question;
  5. search for truth and do not just try to support a personal opinion;
  6. write their own literature review;
  7. not use an author's words without citing them;
  8. not use an author’s ideas without citing them.
