The State of Trust & Integrity in Research

Download the document.

This report highlights the significant and critical role funding agencies and other research stakeholders have in improving the integrity of research. In the first section, experts provide context and an example from one funding agency on organisation-wide policies for improving research integrity. 

The second section of the report presents a broader landscape of data and open science policies worldwide along with an analysis of how these policies are put into practice. Finally, we present a case study and analysis of one funding agency’s practices and policies for open research as a lens for evaluating impact. 

Taken together, these articles exemplify the need for a more coordinated approach among funding agencies and other stakeholders in scientific communications and in the research workflow to comprehensively address research integrity. Central to these coordination efforts should be a focus on incentives for researchers and institutions for compliance and for training and education.
