Science journalism ethics were discussed at last month's UK Conference of Science Journalists, the Guardian reported.
Some issues discussed at the annual conference included:
"should science journalists focus on explaining science or on exposing misconduct?"
"should the Leveson inquiry leave journalism to regulate itself or has the press already failed that crucial test?"
how can "quality science reporting" be differentiated from "churnalism and fiction?"
