SOUZA-JUNIOR, Edison Vitório de et al. Ethics and Bioethics in the Scientific World: An Integrative Review. pers.bioét. [online]. 2020, vol.24, n.2, pp.151-165.  Epub Nov 27, 2020. ISSN 0123-3122.

This paper studies the reality of ethical and bioethical issues in the scientific world through an integrative literature review of articles included in three databases. Seven terms from the thesaurus Health Sciences Descriptors were used, from which three combinations were elaborated and used in the three databases. After applying inclusion requirements, a total of 18 articles were selected. Certain misconducts, particularly plagiarism, falsification and data fabrication, have been showing an increasing behavior, which requires more stringent measures in order to control such phenomenon and maintain scientific credibility before society and authorities.

Keywords : Scientific misconduct; research; plagiarism; ethics, research; scientific publication ethics.
