Lipids article of the month: Importance of Ethics in Scientific Research

This month Lipids' editor-in-chief, Eric Murphy, chose to highlight two letters to the editor. Both letters are titled "The Importance of Ethics in Scientific Research," one by Regan Lawrence, the other by Gbolahan Bamgbose. Murphy says the journal works diligently to educate authors on the importance of ethical publishing and demands authors' work meets the highest ethical standards. In their letters, these two first year graduate students present different perspectives on the importance of conducting scientific discovery in an ethical manner. "I hope each of you have an opportunity to read each letter and to gain an appreciation of their insight," says Murphy. "For the public, these letters are important to understand that we do indeed take ethical conduct of scientific discovery seriously and that we are working to build a strong foundation of ethical conduct in the students we train."
