Ethics is a set of principles that apply to all societies and times, and that provide the right behavior and living. According to this, professional ethics are values which direct the persons to act on the basis of the truths of the related profession and science field. In each field ethical principles are organizer, so they cannot be considered apart from the academic life and research process. Science will contribute to the development of society as long as done upon ethical principles, correctly and reliably. In this sense, science ethics is part of the academic world. It is important for the academicians who will carry out scientific research activities to be aware of these ethical principles and values at the beginning of their profession.
