Promoting Disclosure

The Integrity in Science project promotes full disclosure of conflicts of interest when scientists publish in journals, are quoted in the press or appear before legislative or regulatory bodies at all levels of government. The project and its allies in the scientific community believe total disclosure of conflicts of interest is mandatory if the public is to maintain its faith in the integrity of the scientific process, and the government is to remain a fair and impartial arbiter of scientific disputes that determine the laws and regulations that affect the health and safety of the American people.
