Getting Started With Your Research Integrity Toolkit

This Research Integrity toolkit is an outcome of the June 2017 two-day ORI-sponsored conference that took place at George Mason University in Arlington, VA. Its purpose is to support responsible research organizations and provide a framework and guidance for research integrity within the context of effective research management.

As research administrators and managers, we all have an important role to play to ensure that we support a culture of responsibility. A healthy research enterprise is dependent on scientific, financial, and professional standards that can stand strong in the face of mounting pressures from many different sources. We hope that this toolkit will serve as an ongoing resource that can unite our global research support community by creating opportunities for networking, mentoring, and sharing proven practices.
