Research on Research Integrity.
This request for applications seeks to address the need for more and better information on the factors that encourage and/or discourage integrity in publicly funded research. For our purposes, research is defined broadly to include societal, institutional, and individual aspects of the enterprise. Integrity is understood as adherence to rules, regulations, guidelines, and commonly accepted professional codes or norms. Applicants are encouraged to submit proposals that will provide generalizable empirical knowledge about the ways in which researchers and research institutions meet or fail to meet their professional responsibilities in the conduct, evaluation, and reporting of research. Particular areas of interest include but are not limited to 1) research norms and/or practices, 2) institutional climate and responsibility, 3) education on the responsible conduct of research, 4) mentor/trainee relationships, 5) data acquisition, management, sharing, and ownership, 6) responsible authorship, 7) integrity of publication practices and the research record, 8) research collaborations and issues that may arise from such collaborations, 9) conflicts of interest, and 10) the meaning of research misconduct and the regulations, policies, and guidelines that govern research misconduct in Public Health Service--funded institutions.
Applicants should use the NIH individual research project grant (R01) award mechanism. Prospective applicants are asked to submit a letter of intent by 15 October 2001, with final applications due 19 November 2001.
