Physics Colloquium, "Ethics and the Welfare of the Physics Profession"
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.
