10 Rules for Building and Maintaining a Scientific Reputation

In the latest edition of PLoS Computational Biology, Philip Bourne and Virginia Barbour wrote an editorial, posting 10 rules for building and maintaining your scientific reputation.

These 10 rules are:

  1. Think before you act.
  2. Do not ignore criticism.
  3. Do not ignore people.
  4. Diligently check everything you publish and take publishing seriously.
  5. Always declare conflicts of interest.
  6. Do your share for the community.
  7. Do not commit to tasks you cannot complete.
  8. Do not write poor reviews of grants and papers.
  9. Do not write references for people who do not deserve it.
  10. Never plagiarize or doctor your data.

They are rather obvious, but it never hurts to read them again.
