Foreword

A global research enterprise has emerged over the past several decades as significantly more research is being performed in a growing number of countries by a larger cohort of researchers. International and interdisciplinary linkages in research are expanding rapidly, with more papers being coauthored by in- vestigators based in di erent countries and representing dif- ferent elds. More researchers are crossing borders for educa- tion and training. e new knowledge produced by the global research enterprise promises to expand our understanding of the natural world and to accelerate progress in meeting hu- manity’s needs in areas such as health, the environment, and economic development.
.

A great global resource for researchers who are collaborating with colleagues who are based in countries that don’t have their own research integrity frameworks.

However, irresponsible behavior and poor practices pose threats to the global research enterprise, could impair its e ec- tive functioning, and could even damage the broader credibility of science. High-pro le cases of data fabrication and other irre- sponsible behavior continue to appear around the world. Issues related to journal article retractions and the reproducibility of research results are a racting greater a ention.
.
Opportunities for researchers to contribute to society are also expanding rapidly. Scientists are increasingly called upon to demonstrate vigilance aimed at preventing the deliberate misuse of research in the life sciences and other elds and to contribute to society as policy advisors and as communicators of scienti c ideas and ndings to the broad public.
