WHY:
Research ethics are key to the academic endeavour. Whether in the lab, the library or in the field, researchers have the responsibility to collect and present information in an accurate and respectful way. Learn more about the current state of worldwide progress on research integrity, discuss new challenges and emerging topics, and help shape national and international responses. The world conference on research integrity provides a forum for discussion and exchange of ideas, expertise, and experience among national and institutional leaders, policy makers, research funders, leaders of professional societies, journal editors, publishers, researchers, educators, administrators, and graduate and postdoctoral trainees.
