    If they sign this with the same honesty that medics treat the Hippocratic oath we're screwed. What an indictment that this is even needed!

    A good thing for them to acknowledge that it's needed though, rather than continue to pretend at researchers are free from the self-interested incentives to dishonesty which corrupt other human systems.
