Search the following databases for additional articles:
When searching any database, you may wish to start with a key word search, but then look for subject headings when they are used. Subject headings will always provide you with a more precise search. In this particular area, most writers use the term "scientific misconduct" but the database creators do not always use this term when indexing.
PubMed or NLM Gateway for medical research and articles relating to medicine. A subset of PubMed dealing more closely with scientific misconduct in the medical field is Bioethics, and is recommended by our Sciences Bibliographer as a starting place for non-scientists. You can also get to the Bioethics subset through PubMed by clicking on Limits, then clicking on the Subsets dropdown box and selecting Bioethics.
Science Direct Clinical Pharmacology (EbscoHost) http://www.lemoyne.edu/library/resources/titles/clinical_pharmacology.htm Recommend the Advanced Search to refine to a particular discipline or topic. No subject headings.
ERIC http://www.lemoyne.edu/library/resources/titles/eric.htm No clear subject heading, but keyword "scientific misconduct" retrieves useful sources, and provides usable subject headings.
Lexis Nexis Academic Universe http://www.lemoyne.edu/library/resources/titles/lexis_nexis_academic_universe.htm Provides full-text articles, transcripts, laws, and news items on all topics. No controlled vocabulary (subject headings) exist in this database, so try a variety of terms and phrases, such as fraud, misconduct, or "scientific misconduct."
Other databases can be accessed on the Library listing of Resources by Subject Category.
