Chapter 7: Conflicts of interest and academic research

Jorge L Contreras and Marc Daniel Rinehart

Abstract

In response to the increasing support of academic research by the private sector and highly-publicized instances of academic misfeasance, federal funding agencies, research institutions and scientific journals have developed a complex system for identifying, assessing, reporting and mitigating conflicts of interest. In this Chapter, we summarize some of the procedures implemented by these stakeholders in the research enterprise to reduce the impact of conflicts of interest.
