Scientific Integrity Principles and Best Practices Across the Scientific Enterprise

Scientific integrity is of utmost importance for all facets of the scientific community, yet issues continue to be widespread. The Scientific Integrity Consortium recently brought together representatives from multiple sectors to consider a set of principles and best practices to be used broadly across all scientific disciplines as a mechanism for community consensus on scientific integrity standards. Join us for a conversation with two members of the Consortium, Cathie Woteki and Sarah Rovito, to discuss the agreed upon principles and best practices and the recommended actions that will help implement them. We encourage you to share your experiences in facing scientific integrity decisions during the webinar and welcome your feedback on opportunities for integrating the principles and best practices into teaching and learning materials and informing policy development.

The Scientific Integrity Consortium, convened by ILSI North America, represents four U.S. and three Canadian government agencies, eleven professional societies, six universities, and three nonprofit scientific organizations. In 2017 the group gleaned input from individual sectors and scientific disciplines to develop two principles and nine best practices to help strengthen policies already in place, aid in the development of new policies, and raise the importance of creating a culture in the scientific community that upholds scientific integrity. The Consortium seeks input from listeners on possibilities for influencing the development of standards by academic institutions, scientific organizations, and relevant government agencies.
