As you see from obokata
issue , she lacks a sense of research ethics, Manipulating the data
and images from other articles and experiments and used them in her articles is
not accepted behavior from a scientist researcher. we must awareness people
about the the ethics of research from fabrication and manipulation of data and others scientific misconduct and learn from
this, every one must be responsible of her or his own research, and should admission of scientific guilt , and gives apologist
from this misconduct.
In my opinion maybe there’s many reasons that’s lead obokata
to this level of misconduct, it could be bias in the result and not get the
desired result .
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 publishe her research ,Maybe this reasons pushes obokata to
in my opinion about what the journal did is a correct behavior
of scientific misconduct ,As we can see what the journal did about obokata 2
paper 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.
