Project Summary

This project responds to the Roadmap Towards APEC Guiding Principles for Research Integrity, the outcome of the 2016 APEC Guiding Principles for Research Integrity project (HRD 01 2016S). To facilitate greater researcher collaboration and mobility in the region, the roadmap recommends that APEC economies work together to develop a common understanding of research integrity definitions before collaboratively developing a set of guiding principles on research integrity. 

Phase Two of the APEC Guiding Principles for Research Integrity project will respond to these recommendations by:

·  Developing a research report that frames key research integrity issues and definitions;

·  Hosting a workshop in late 2017 to discuss the report and collectively develop the draft set of guiding principles;

·  Undertaking in-economy consultations in early 2018 to gain input on the proposed guiding principles and explore the document’s practical applications;

·  Seeking endorsement for a final APEC Guiding Principles for Research Integrity document. 

The development of a set of high-level, voluntary principles for the region will provide a common reference point for APEC researchers, helping to reduce the complexities for cross-border research that result from different understandings of research integrity. 

These non-binding principles would be informed by consultation with APEC economies and draw on existing codes and standards from across the region such as the Singapore Statement on Research Integrity (www.singaporestatement.org). This approach will help research communities in APEC economies learn from the experiences of their peers and share good practice. 

The resources that are developed through this process may also be used by economies to support APEC policy discussions and assist universities and research organisations to promote the region’s commitment to research quality. 

Following endorsement by HRDWG, support has also been sought from the PPSTI forum due to the cross-cutting nature of research integrity.
