As you see from haruko obokata issue , she is poorness and
needs the sense of ethics research , Manipulating the data and images from
other articles and experiments and used them in her articles is not accepted
behavior from a scientist researcher. so people they have to be awareness on ethics of research to avoid misconduct like ( fabrication,
falsification, plagiarism) and learn from this misconduct if occurs , and every one must be responsible of her / his
own research, and should be admission of this scientific guilt , and gives apologist
from this misconduct to give highest ethical standards.
In my opinion maybe there’s many reasons that’s lead obokata
to this level of misconduct . she has spent
long hours in her experiment, growing, manipulating and testing cells
in differents way, and she sense with
every hypothesis there’s a hunch in mind and he has strong sense about what she
expected . and she really want to prove that her sense or lunch is right, that the money was invested into her
work was well spent, she want to get ahead in competitive field, with the
intense pressure. But she has got her results and was surprised that her
results are disappointing, And she need to do like something a little
creatively. And when she get rid of the original data, But once she start
fiddling with the facts, it’s hard to stop.
In part, that’s because she thought how
easy it is to fool her colleagues. Also
she has enjoyed their admiration and she
want be have a chance to published her research ,Maybe this reasons pushes
obokata to this misconduct.
to Maintaining the
highest ethical standards they should investigate the research , and take it seriously , so they did what they had to do to
scientific misconduct ,As we can see what the journal did about obokata 2 papers
after scientific misconduct, they deal with
the issue by investigating the papers by themselves, nature journal was
provided with details of ricken investigation . and evaluate whether the
evidence available supports the main conclusions of the paper , And then decide
to withdrawal 2 papers.
