This paper examines how scientists can learn how to practice science, why it is important for scientists to learn how to do science well, and strategies for improving the education of scientists. The paper is chiefly based on scholarly works on various aspects of how science is done, including scientific methodology, experimental design, and the art of discovering. Interviews, limited in number and in scope, serve as illustrations of the literature.
