Abstract: Many factors increase the risk of research integrity violations or serious non-compliance. This article explores these factors, highlighting wrongdoing and “right-doing” in research, using data from the first 68 participants in the Professionalism & Integrity in Research Program and the Bioethics Research Center at Washington University School of Medicine. The Professionalism & Integrity in Research Program serves investigators following professional lapses. The Bioethics Research Center studies the factors that contribute to violations of research integrity and also to exemplary research. The implications of these findings for remediation and prevention of research integrity violations are described.
