The discussion concerning deontology in the excellent post by Charles
Ess struck a note in my mind.  If I am correct, the human experiments in
Nazi Germany resulted in a medical book.  Wasn't there some movement to
quash the book or the knowledge gained in those experiments? (I would
appreciate references where I could become more informed on that

If there was an effort to quash that knowledge, would this not be a
strong indicator that researchers disregarding ethical standards would
be risking both their professional reputations and the dismissal of
their contributions by the scholarly community?
