Trust and the collection, selection, analysis and interpretation of data: A scientist's view

Science and Engineering Ethics 1 (4):371-382 (1995)
Trust is a critical component of research: trust in the work of co-workers and colleagues within the scientific community; trust in the work of research scientists by the non-research community. A wide range of factors, including internally and externally generated pressures and practical and personal limitations, affect the research process. The extent to which these factors are understood and appreciated influence the development of trust in scientific research findings.
