FINAL REMARKS

Table of Contents:

From the present result and discussion, the following final remarks can be drawn. [1]

  • 5. The shift in focus to inspecting original data directly in the electronic system exposed an industry-wide issue that will require several more years of efforts to improve.
  • 6. Open peer review does not compromise process at least when referees protect their anonymity.
  • 7. Publishing reports did not significantly compromise referees’ willingness to review, recommendations or turn-around times.
  • 8. Younger and nonacademic scholars were more willing to accept to review and provided more positive and objective recommendations.
  • 9. Male referees tended to write more constructive reports during the pilot.
  • 10. Only 8.1% of referees agreed to reveal their identity in the published report.

  • [1] A 40% of surveyed researchers were aware of misconduct. However,they did not report it. 2. A 17% of surveyed authors of clinical dmg trials reported thatthey personally knew of fabrication in research, occurring over theprevious 10 years. 3. It results critical that culture of research be developed within thesystem, which should be based on basic fundamentals of integrity,openness, and honest work. 4. Misconduct reasons follow: prevalent in good manufacturing practice laboratories, widespread in research laboratories, less-rigorouscontrols in research laboratories, research laboratories result less likelyto be inspected, and research laboratories present similar motives.
