Integrity in research collaborations: The Montreal Statement
Last week, new guidance was issued as an outcome of the 3rd World Conference on Research Integrity, held in May in Montreal, Canada. The Montreal Statement on Research Integrity in Cross-Boundary Research Collaborations was developed before, during, and after the conference. Three workshop sessions at the conference were dedicated to in-depth discussions and further comments after the conference were taken into account to arrive at this version. Cross-boundary research includes collaboration between different institutions, disciplines, sectors, and countries.
