Montreal Statement on Research Integrity in Cross-Boundary Research Collaborations
Research collaboration that crosses national, institutional, disciplinary and sector boundaries is important to the advancement of knowledge worldwide. Such collaborations present special challenges, however, for the responsible conduct of research, because they may involve substantial differences in regulatory and legal systems, organizational and funding structures, research cultures, and approaches to training. It is critically important, therefore, that researchers be aware of and able to address such differences, as well as issues related to integrity that may arise in cross-boundary research collaborations. Fostering the integrity of collaborative research is the responsibility of all individual and institutional partners.
Researchers should adhere to the professional responsibilities set forth in the Singapore Statement on Research Integrity. In addition, the following responsibilities are particularly relevant to collaborating partners at the individual and institutional levels and fundamental to the integrity of collaborative research.
