As economic, social and political developments encumber responsibility to many parts of the society, they also encumber some responsibilities to scientists as well. In this context, scientists are required to produce solutions for problems about the topics which belong to their areas. Especially, the responsibilites of social scientists are higher about this issue. Because, rules of natural sciences are certain and mechanism of these rules do not change. On the other hand, the possibility of providing a direct recipe for solutions to problems in social sciences is almost impossible. In this context, the issue of “what is university and what should be the mission of university?” is handled. Therefore, the answers to the questions “who is scientist and what is the characteristic of a scientist” are revealed. Afterwards, scientific research ethics and its coverage are emphasized; ethical violations, ethical violations in the Internet and the sanctions of ethical violations are explained. Later on, social responsibility of social scientists were tried to be explained. In this context, a model which reveals the socail responsibility of social scientists is presented. The model consists of four stages and it is explained that it follows a hierarchical path to achieve the social responsibility.
