InterAcademy Council Issues Recommendations On Scientific Integrity

The Interacademy Council, a global equivalent of many national research councils, has collaborated with the IAP on the first part of a scientific integrity project.  The two groups released a report earlier today on principles to incorporate into all phases of the research process.

Part of the recommendations focus on changes in research tools and practices over the last several years.  This includes increases in international collaboration and more intense use of data in experiments.  These and other make it even more important to have a global set of common principles and practices make scientific integrity easier to achieve.

The report also focuses on how national institutions and government can help in this effort.  Presumably the Global Research Council can help.

The full report is available online.
