Research Integrity—The Montreal Statement

The 3rd World Conference on Research Integrity, held 5–8 May 2013 in Montreal, focused international attention on research integrity, responsible conduct of research, and publication of research. Attendees had opportunities to learn the current state of worldwide progress on research integrity, discussed new challenges and emerging topics, and helped shape national and international responses.

The conference provided 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.

Former IUPAC President Leiv Sydnes, chair of ChemRAWN and also chair of the ICSU Committee on Freedom and Responsibility in the Conduct of Science, attended the conference.

Areas of particular interest included:

  • integrity in cross-national, cross-disciplinary and cross-sector partnerships
  • trust in science, including political and media issues, responses to misconduct, and correction of the scientific record
  • emerging challenges in research integrity associated with new technologies and scientific frontiers
  • fostering research integrity through policies, codes, standards, and training

One outcome of the conference is the Montreal Statement, which offers guidance on integrity in cross-national, cross-disciplinary, and cross-sector research. At the conference, attendees had the opportunity to comment on a draft statement. The finalized version will be issued after a one-month comment period.
