Gilmore, Ryann M.
Online Submission, Paper presented at the ASHE Conference (Charlotte, NC, Nov 17-19, 2011)
In order to preserve research integrity, leaders at postsecondary research institutions must utilize transformational leadership behaviors in order to promote a campus culture that is the most conducive to responsible research conduct. In support of this assertion, the issue of research misconduct and its potential consequences for both researchers and postsecondary research institutions will be examined, along with a discussion of the dynamics in play within an institution's culture, and how this can contribute to research misconduct. In addition, the advantages of utilizing transformational leadership behaviors to establish an institutional culture that is more conducive to responsible research conduct will be examined; and, finally, guidelines regarding how these transformational leadership behaviors can be utilized in order to promote research integrity will be outlined.
