Suggested Use

I have used this resource in a 400-level Ethnographic Field Techniques course. It is a brief editorial explaining ethical issues like publishing the same material more than one.  It also explains the process of peer-review and collaboration.  It is great to have students read before they start writing a paper.  It helps explain the process of science.
