Health and Medicine. Industry and Labor. Math, Chemistry, and Physics.Digital technology is incorporated into nearly every facet of American life, from commerce, community, healthcare, food systems, transportation, education, media, entertainment, and employment. Its increasingly integral nature raises critical questions moving forward, such as what emerging technologies are complicating the ability to verify authenticity and integrity in a digital world? Also, what emerging technologies enable the creation of systems of trust that enforce standards of authenticity, integrity, and security?
How can partnerships between government, universities, and companies shape public policy to prioritize authenticity and integrity within systems—and who will be the stewards and custodians of such systems? To address these and related questions, the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine held a workshop on February Through presentations from experts and robust discussions, the workshop focused on technologies, processes, and governance that affect digital privacy and security now and into the coming decades.
This publication summarizes the presentations and discussions from the workshop. This report recommends that all researchers receive appropriate training in the management of research data and calls on them to make all research data, methods, and other information underlying results publicly accessible in a timely manner. The stewardship of research data is also a critical long-term task for the research enterprise and its stakeholders. The book describes the ethical foundations of scientific practices and some of the personal and professional issues that researchers encounter in their work.
It applies to all forms of research--whether in academic, industrial, or governmental settings-and to all scientific disciplines. This third edition of On Being a Scientist reflects developments since the publication of the original edition in and a second edition in A continuing feature of this edition is the inclusion of a number of hypothetical scenarios offering guidance in thinking about and discussing these scenarios. This brief report describes the results of an assessment done to collect user comments on the first and second editions of the Reference manual, as well as suggestions for the third edition.
These comments and suggestions on format, audience, and content will be used to guide the development of the third edition. The new administration and the nation need exceptionally able scientists, engineers, and health professionals to serve in the federal government.11/07/2019 - Wrap-Up
This report lists 80 high-level science and technology appointees who are crucial to advise the new President on issues ranging from energy to health care to economic growth. Congress and the new President should reduce the obstacles to attracting the most qualified people to these jobs, and members of the scientific community should consider serving in them.
The Academies presidents sent the report to the two Presidential candidates in Septemberechoing the recommendations of other prominent groups such as the Woodrow Wilson Center and the Center for the Study of the Presidency. Instead, OMB will conduct "constructive performance reviews focused on high-priority performance goals agency leaders have identified.
The need for particular instruments has become broader, crossing scientific and engineering disciplines. The growth of interdisciplinary research that focuses on problems defined outside the boundaries of individual disciplines demands more instrumentation. Instruments that were once of interest only to specialists are now required by a wide array of scientists to solve critical research problems. The need for entirely new types of instruments—such as distributed networks, cybertools, and sensor arrays—is increasing.National Academy of Sciences U.

Scientists trust that the results reported by others are valid. Society trusts that the results of research reflect an honest attempt by scientists to describe the world accurately and without bias. But this trust will endure only if the scientific community devotes itself to exemplifying and transmitting the values associated with ethical scientific conduct.
On Being a Scientist was designed to supplement the informal lessons in ethics provided by research supervisors and mentors. The book describes the ethical foundations of scientific practices and some of the personal and professional issues that researchers encounter in their work.

It is feasible to monitor US performance with field-by-field peer assessments. This might be done through the establishment of independent panels consisting of researchers who work in a field, individuals who work in closely related fields, and research "users" who follow the field closely.
Some of these individuals should be outstanding foreign scientists in the field being examined.Latest Update April 19, The committee is charged with the responsibility "to deliberate on initiatives for new studies in the area of science and technology policy, taking especially into account the concerns and requests of the President's Science Adviser, the Director of the National Science Foundation, the Chairman of the National Science Board, and the chairmen of key science and technology-related committees of the Congress.
Representation on the committee from the three Councils will not fall below two from each Council; as many as 10 members may be appointed at large from the memberships of the three organizations.

In she moved to the National Cancer Institute.
Her interest in primate DNA led to the discovery of a transposable element in the human genome. She received the Distinguished Presidential Rank Award, the highest honor given to a civil servant, and the National Medal of Science in Bruce M.

Most of its members are current or former members of the Councils of the three institutions. It was chartered by the Academies to address "the concerns and requests of the President's Science Advisor, the Director of the National Science Foundation, the Chair of the National Science Board, and heads of other federal research and development departments and agencies, and the Chairs of key science and technology-related committees of the Congress.
COSEMPUP studies are usually conducted by special interdisciplinary panels comprising the nation's best scientific and engineering expertise. While many studies are sponsored by government agencies, COSEMPUP procedures safeguard its studies from the influence of sponsors or other outside groups.
It, and its progenitors, have played a prominent role on a range of critical science policy issues since the Eisenhower and Kennedy Administrations raised scientific issues to the national policy agenda. It was clear soon after the launch of Sputnik by the U.
R and the appointment of the first Presidential Science Advisor that the President and his advisers needed a systematic way to tap the expertise of the U. The NAS at that point, however, had no mechanism for doing so. Its purpose was to draw on the expertise of the wide range of disciplines represented in the Academy to assist the NAS President and Council in their roles of advising the government at the highest levels on policy matters related to U.
It was envisioned that the Committee would respond to requests of the Presidential Science Advisor and chairmen and staff directors of key Congressional science and technology committees. It proved to be a most visible and influential committee of the NAS, issuing 49 separate documents on a broad range of science and technology policy issues. Many were at the core of the newly-emerging national discussion of U. Among its landmark publications were "Federal Support of Basic Research in Institutions of Higher Learning""Basic Research and National Goals""Technology: Processes of Assessment and Choice"and ten detailed surveys of the health and direction of major fields of science.
Formally, the Committee is charged with the responsibility "to deliberate on initiatives for new studies in the area of science and technology policy, taking especially into account the concerns and requests of the President's Science Advisor, the Director of the NSF, the Chairman of the National Science Board, and the chairmen of key science and technology-related committees of the Congress.
