Originating Calendar Physics - Colloquium
In 2002 several prominent cases of data falsification were discovered in physics papers published in leading journals. The situation prompted the American Physical Society to form a Task Force on Ethics to understand better how Ethics education takes place in the physics community. By surveying the APS community, in particular the junior members, the Task Force received a lot of information on ethics concerns. I will report on APS Ethics activities since 2004, and describe some of the resources which are available.
