VASCONCELOS, Sonia M.R. et al. Brazilian Science and Research Integrity: Where are We? What Next?. An. Acad. Bras. Ciênc. [online]. 2015, vol.87, n.2, pp.1259-1269. ISSN 0001-3765.

Building a world-class scientific community requires first-class ingredients at many different levels: funding, training, management, international collaborations, creativity, ethics, and an understanding of research integrity practices. All over the world, addressing these practices has been high on the science policy agenda of major research systems. Universities have a central role in fostering a culture of research integrity, which has posed additional challenges for faculty, students and administrators - but also opportunities. In Brazil, the leading universities and governmental funding agencies are collaborating on this project, but much remains to be done.

Keywords : Responsible conduct of research; academic integrity; science policy; research ethics education; international collaborations; 4th World Conference on Research Integrity.
