- a list of mistakes people commonly make and a quiz to teach how to avoid them through understanding the reasons for the guidelines.
- a case study section including an interactive video case study that shows how, when best practices in image processing, mentoring, and authorship are used, the entire research group benefits, and a handout for live group discussion.
- some examples of unethical research behavior and consequences of not conforming to best or even marginally good practices.
- a section on the relationship between best practices and compliance, including a videotaped interview with a journal editor.
