As the level of international research collaboration increases, institutions are seeking to strengthen their systems for managing research misconduct and promoting research integrity, particularly in the context of multi-site research projects that cross regional boundaries. This meeting, co-sponsored with the University of California, San Diego, convenes experts from Asia and the Pacific Rim and North America, along with representatives of the National Science Foundation, journals, and senior institutional officials to help raise awareness of U.S research misconduct regulations and share recommendations around promoting the responsible conduct of research.
