Recent global attention to research integrity has led to international meetings and the development of international policies and guidelines. The United States's infrastructure for fostering research integrity (policy, instruction, oversight) has usefully supported these international initiatives. The United States cannot and should not, however, expect other national and global systems to match exactly its approach to research integrity.
Bibliographical noteFunding Information:
The U.S. Office of Research Integrity (ORI) has played a pivotal role in promoting the integrity of research funded by the Public Health Service, notably the National Institutes of Health1. Its influence, however, has extended to fields of study beyond the life sciences, beyond federally-funded research, and beyond the United States. Its approach to fostering research integrity broke new ground in policy and training, and its work has provided models for others.
