“The human soul - the way He molded it and inspired it
with knowledge of its evil and its good - bears witness
to the fact that indeed he, who cleanses it [of all impiety] shall be successful while he, who corrupts it
shall face doom.”  (The Holy Koran)


Code of Scientific Ethics ....      

“Good scientific practice embraces all the procedures and practices that are necessary for planning, conducting and reporting research and scholarship within a framework of scientific integrity. By providing a common currency, good practice facilitates the vital, external processes of peer review, verification and repeatability. This enables other scientists to judge the validity of new contributions to knowledge and understanding. Standard methodologies for collecting and interpreting information also reduce the individual bias that might be introduced, perhaps unwittingly, by a scientist’s personal background and values. And the audit trail created by good scientific practice provides quality assurance and a valuable buttress against scientific misconduct and fraud” (European Science Foundation Policy Briefing “Good Scientific Practice in Research and Scholarship”, December 2000, p.5).
