The Hippocratic Oath is historically taken by doctors swearing to practice medicine ethically. There is no such oath that scientists swear, but we are expected to perform research responsibly and to publish scientific truth. There are 3 obligations which motivate scientists to adhere to strict ethical and scientific professional practices:

1) Researchers honour the trust placed in them by their colleagues.

2) The obligation researchers have to themselves.

3) The third obligation is to society and to perform research which will serve the public.

We will discuss the importance of adhering to these principles and the consequences should it go awry.
