Release Date:  March 13, 2000

NOTICE:  OD-00-028

Department of Health and Human Services

The Office of Research Integrity (ORI) and the American Association for the 
Advancement of Science (AAAS) are convening a conference on the role and 
activities of scientific societies in promoting research integrity in 
Washington, D.C. on April 10-11, 2000.  Examples of the issues likely to be 
explored at the conference include: What ethics standards and policies are 
currently in place in professional societies and how do the societies 
communicate these standards to members and students? What range of 
professional conduct is covered by the standards? How do/should members use 
the standards or policies in their work?  In training new or future members? 
What support structures (e.g., ethics committees, hotlines) do/should 
professional societies employ to promote research integrity? How effective 
are the standards and support structures? What factors (e.g., law, resources, 
internal pressures) constrain or facilitate action by societies?
