Question 1.1

1. Consider the daily research functions of a scientist. In this scenario, a scientist is attempting to collect air quality samples to be analyzed for various greenhouse gases. The scientist is excited to begin data collection and begins running the air samples through the sampling equipment, forgetting to calibrate the equipment first. Only after the fact, once all the samples were run, does the scientist remember that the equipment should have been calibrated first. If the scientist proceeds with the inclusion of these data in his research report, which of the following will occur?
nbIRnRe8R9/OaJB+ sloppy data collection
xdqz80TY1Vwhogjf fabrication
nbIRnRe8R9/OaJB+ deception
nbIRnRe8R9/OaJB+ falsification
xdqz80TY1Vwhogjf plagiarism
sloppy data collection: Not calibrating the equipment leads to incorrect data.::fabrication: This scientist is not fabricating data, as that would require the creation of research results that did not exist. In this situation, the scientist did collect data, but it was inaccurate data::decpetion: A scientist that knowingly includes bad data deceives those who read their report and/or make decisions based on the results::falsification: The results are false and would need to be rejected by an ethical scientist.::plagiarism: This scientist is not plagiarizing, as that act would require the scientist to claim ownership of information, data, or results that were produced by someone else.
