Interpreting Biomedical Science: Experiment, Evidence, and Belief

 
9780124186897: Interpreting Biomedical Science: Experiment, Evidence, and Belief

Science Methodology and What Can Go Wrong: An Interdisciplinary Approach discusses what can go wrong in biological science, providing an unbiased view and cohesive understanding of scientific methods, statistics, data interpretation, and scientific ethics that are illustrated with practical examples and real-life applications. Casting a wide net, the reader is exposed to scientific problems and solutions through informed perspectives from history, philosophy, sociology, and the social psychology of science. The book shows the differences and similarities between disciplines and different eras and illustrates the concept that while sound methodology is necessary for the progress of science, we cannot succeed without a right culture of doing things. * Features theoretical concepts accompanied by examples from biological literature* Contains an introduction to various methods, with an emphasis on statistical hypothesis testing* Presents a clear argument that ties the motivations and ethics of individual scientists to the success of their science* Provides recommendations on how to safeguard against scientific misconduct, fraud, and retractions* Arms young scientists with practical knowledge that they can use every day

Review:

"The book breaks down myths about research, gives tools to young scientists, and arms them with practical knowledge that they can use every day. The book will cover the history of science, which is important to know if one is to learn from the mistakes of the past. It aims to break down the notion that scientists are infallible creatures of logic and shows the danger of that type of blind faith." -Keith Micoli, Postdoctoral Program Director, Ethics Program Coordinator, NYU School of Medicine, Sackler Institute of Graduate Biomedical Sciences
