SETAC Declaration on Research Integrity ​

Adopted 17 October 2019

We recognize the need for research integrity to guarantee that high-quality research is available to be used as the basis for science-based environmental decision-making.

We therefore agree that research from all sectors (including academic, governmental and private) should be founded on principles listed in internationally and multi-stakeholder accepted standards, such as the following or any appropriate equivalent:

We urge all SETAC staff, members, meeting participants, partners and sponsors, and in fact the entire community of environmental professionals, to follow these principles in all aspects of research (including funding, data generation, interpretation, reporting, dissemination and usage for policymaking).

We commit, with the support of SETAC staff and volunteers from the entire SETAC membership, to fostering a culture of research integrity and to develop and implement a research integrity plan across all SETAC activities (including professional training and education).
