Section I. Funding Opportunity Description

The purpose of this exploratory/developmental grant program is to foster research on research integrity in areas of research that have little published data. The proposed project must challenge existing paradigms, be developed around an innovative hypothesis or address critical barriers to progress in understanding the multiple factors that underlie deviation from integrity in research.  The sponsoring agencies are particularly interested in research focused on integrity in research that will provide clear evidence (rates of occurrence and impacts) of problem areas in community standards, self-regulation, practice norms, and non-adherence to accepted codes of conduct. The application must address the societal, organizational, group, or individual factors that affect integrity in research, both positively and negatively. Applications must have relevance to health sciences research including, for example, those biomedical, behavioral health sciences, or health services research areas having particular positive or negative research integrity issues. Applicants must address problems or issues that have relevance to the specific interests of ORI or NIH Institutes and Centers.  An experimental approach is preferred over descriptive research.

All other information in the FOA remains the same.
