Accountability in Research

About the Journal

Accountability in Research is devoted to the examination and critical analysis of systems for maximizing integrity in the conduct of research. It provides an interdisciplinary, international forum for the development of new procedures, standards, and policies to encourage the ethical conduct of research for enhancing the validity of research results. The journal publishes original empirical, methodological, policy and theoretical papers, case studies, conference reports, and book reviews that address issues of integrity and accountability in research. The journal seeks to serve a broad range of scientists and administrators in academia, industry, and government. Although relevant to any discipline, the journal focuses particularly on biotechnology, chemistry, medicine, pharmacology, toxicology, pathology, environmental science, and clinical trials. While Accountability in Research welcomes divergent views on these topics, the journal also publishes views from research scientists on other disciplines such as law, medicine, economics, statistics, management studies, public policy, sociology, history, psychology, philosophy, ethics, and information science -- all concerned with ethics and integrity in scientific research.
