The scientific process requires open, transparent examination and honest interpretation of data, regardless of a researcher’s affiliation or source of funding. To address the potential influence of funding source on scientific research, ILSI North America developed 8 Guiding Principles for Private Funding of Food Science and Nutrition Research. These guidelines were specifically designed to protect the integrity and credibility of the scientific record.
These principles were published simultaneously published in six peer-reviewed scientific journals: Nutrition Reviews, American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, Journal of the American Dietetic Association, Journal of Food Science, Nutrition Today, and The Journal of Nutrition. Each of ILSI’s 17 independently-operating entities must comply with these Guiding Principles, as outlined in ILSI’s Mandatory Policies.
