Fostering Integrity in Science: An Action Agenda

Sunday, February 14, 2016: 8:00 AM-9:30 AM
Marriott Balcony A (Marriott Wardman Park)
This session features a discussion of two new publications aimed at fostering scientific integrity. The U.S. National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine report Integrity of Science examines the most significant challenges facing the research enterprise in fostering integrity and develops an action agenda for researchers and other stakeholders. The committee chair provides an overview of the project and the global implications of its findings, and a committee member will outline tasks for researchers, institutions, sponsors, journals, and societies going forward. The InterAcademy Partnership’s forthcoming educational guide Doing Global Science: Responsible Conduct in the Global Research Enterprise is a new resource for responsible conduct of research, from the world’s academies of science and medicine. Committee co-chairs provide an overview of the report and frame the issue of how academies can foster scientific integrity going forward.
