ethics in science communication and both qualitative and quantitative analysis will be used for accuracy of information. The results will be discussed and the inference reached. Comment by Biely Family: Remove “The” Comment by Biely Family: Re-word sentence, a little wordy.Suggestion: A scientist should never omit negatively implicit information in relation to its possible effect on a desired conclusion. Comment by Biely Family: Try “tremendously” Comment by Biely Family: Try “opportunities”Comment by Biely Family: Try “designed” Methodology Comment by Biely Family: When references the “Methodology” it is suppose to refer to the process you went through in locating your supporting information for your hypothesis. While your description and breakdown of both the Quantitative and Qualitative pieces were well written this is not what the assignment is requiring. This information may be more appropriate for your “Results” section slightly more condensed.I found referencing the “First Draft Announcement” useful in applying the proper structure for each of my sections. (i.e. Abstract, Introduction, Methods, Results, Discussion, Conclusion) Quantitative Analysis

Questionnaires To collect first-hand information from the scientists, it will be necessary to use data collection methods that will be inclusive and ensure that the information received is substantial. It was, therefore, necessary to use questionnaires as one of the methods of data collection. In the questionnaire forms, the open-ended format was included so that the respondents can have a platform to air their opinions. The close-ended format was also included to minimize the amount of time that would have rather be included in carrying out the research. The population that was targeted in this quantitative method of data collection was chosen randomly in order to get a different variation of opinions from scientists. The questionnaire forms were also used in this study to see if the scientists were ethically competent. This would help a lot in determining whether the respondents were good decision- makers and if they would be able to confidently decide when the situations are hard. Among the questions that were asked in the questionnaire, involved whether the respondents had been engaged in any forms of science communication. The respondents were also required to say whether they were involved in any unethical forms of science communication. In the question, the open-ended format was used to give space

for further explanations by the respondents regarding the effects of unethical practices in science communication. Comment by Biely Family: The wording of this sentence does not flow well.Suggestion: The questionnaire was composed of questions tailored to determine whether the respondents had been engaged in any forms of science communication. Interviews In the study, it was also necessary to engage the scientists physically to get detailed information in regards to ethics in science communication. The reaction and interaction with interviewees would help to collect substantial information that would be used to make inferences at the end of the study.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
