The Singapore Statement on Research Integrity has been collectively produced by research actors worldwide, ranging from researchers, funders, representatives of research institutions and research publishers, who participated in the 2nd World Conference on Research Integrity. This constitutes a remarkable effort towards the development of “unified policies, guidelines and codes of conduct, with the long-range goal of fostering greater integrity in research worldwide”.
This short text states principles and responsibilities on which more specific guidance can be founded. Interestingly, it is applicable to all research actors, included sponsoring organizations and decision-makers who use research results. It constitutes a significant step to involve the whole international research community in practicing and promoting a responsible conduct of research.
