Researchers should be able to rely on the integrity of their colleagues and their honesty in the description of their methodology, in recording their analysis, and in reporting their findings. Those who apply or use research outcomes must be able to trust local, national, and global research processes so that scholarship can become a cumulative exercise. And yet scientists face mounting commercial and institutional pressures to gain grants and publish, a climate in which they may be tempted to engage in unacceptable behavior. The research misconduct that ensues can be very harmful for scholarship as well as for individuals and society.
