Integrity of Science

Friday, 13 February 2015: 1:30 PM-4:30 PM
Room 210AB (San Jose Convention Center)
The National Academies report Integrity of Science (expected release in early 2015) examines the key challenges facing the research enterprise in ensuring integrity and what should be done to address those challenges. The symposium will feature committee members discussing the following aspects of the report: overview of the project; exploration of how advances in technology are affecting integrity; examination of what is known about why researchers engage in misconduct and other detrimental practices and the implications; discussion of detrimental practices that might not fall under the current definition of research misconduct and the importance of addressing them; and tasks for researchers, institutions, sponsors, journals, and societies going forward.
