Research is increasingly carried out through international collaborations, with great benefits to both the scholarly work and the professional development of the researchers themselves. However, when issues of integrity and the proper conduct of research arise in the context of these collaborations, resolution can be particularly difficult.
Problems can arise in relation to human subjects, research funding, data management, legal requirements, cultural norms, and so on. Unfortunately, there are substantial, cross-national differences in policies, oversight, codes of conduct, publication standards, and research training, and the lack of international agreement on how to address issues of research integrity can confound efforts to resolve problems. This presentation will provide evidence on challenges that arise in the context of international research, based on the speaker's ongoing research funded by the National Institutes of Health. It will also review progress on standards and approaches to integrity in the global arena. The presentation draws on the speaker's recently-published, edited volume on integrity in international research collaborations, as well as her role as chair of the next world conference on research integrity.
