Next Steps

As a way to promote greater harmony or uniformity in global standards for responsible research, we encourage organizations to adopt the Singapore Statement and use it as a basis for more detailed guidance on research integrity in their own countries and research settings. We also encourage organizations to sponsor events related to the Singapore Statement.

The Singapore Statement on Research Integrity was developed as part of the 2nd World Conference on Research Integrity, 21-24 July 2010, in Singapore, as a global guide to the responsible conduct of research. It is not a regulatory document and does not represent the official policies of the countries and organizations that funded and/or participated in the Conference. For official policies, guidance, and regulations relating to research integrity, appropriate national bodies and organizations should be consulted.
