Research Integrity and Responsible Conduct of Research

Ann Nichols-Casebolt

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the competing professional interests that can create conflicts in the conduct of research. Commitment to a particular organization or program, a belief in the efficacy of an intervention, or an individual’s numerous obligations can all create conflicts that have the potential for creating bias. As responsible researchers it is important to consider, identify and manage these potential conflicts. This chapter discusses the various types of professional conflicts that may affect the responsible conduct of research, including financial and personal conflicts, conflicts of time and effort, and conflicts of conscience. It presents strategies for managing these potential conflicts, as well as university policies and professional association guidelines related to conflicts of interest.

Keywords:   Professional conflicts, conflict of interest, financial conflicts, conflicts of conscience, conflicts of commitment
