Ethical Issues in Science Communication: A Theory-Based Approach

Description

Scientists have used #overlyhonestmethods to tag posts on Twitter that purport to fill in details of research methods not generally included in formal scientific communications. I consider ethical dimensions of #overlyhonestmethods for communication between scientists, as well as what the conversation communicates to non-scientists watching it.
