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.
