We have a Universal Ethics Code for Scientists, apparently

It fits on two sides of A4 as a handy leaflet, and consists of three words all beginning with R.

I'm very tired and grumpy today.

The code of ethics feels somewhat odd, because it doesn't promote the expansion of knowledge explicitly, which I'd consider (a) an ethical viewpoint and (b) somewhat of a defining force for a scientist.

Is that odd? I'd have assumed it was taken as read, in the same way (say) a corporate code of ethics wouldn't bother to include "try to screw over the competition and make pots of cash".

Also it does not begin with R.

I'm not sure that taking something as read is helpful when compiling a list of ethics is wise - you end up with people deciding that huge-uber-important-taken-as-read point is not needed and ignoring it.

Reading, riting, rithmetic? Rest, relaxation, recuperation? Randy red-nosed reindeer? OK, I'll stop being silly now ;)
